Gainesville, Florida: NCTE congratulates the wonderful advocates at Equality is Gainesville’s Business who organized and executed a highly professional and effective campaign to counter yet another organized anti-LGBT fear mongering effort. With 100% of the city ballots counted, the discriminatory Charter Amendment One has been soundly defeated by a vote of 58% to 42%.
Charter Amendment 1 was an effort by national rightwing organizations to repeal the city’s new anti-discrimination law that would-and now will-allow gay, bi and transgender people to work and live based on their qualifications.
Equality has won. Truth has won. The LGBT-obsessed Right Wing Lie Machine has fallen way short again.
And residents of Gainesville and the amazing people at Equality is Gainesville’s Business ROCK.
