Mississippi Woman Denied Business License for Gay Bar, SPLC files a Federal Lawsuit
This is a video of Pat Newton, a lesbian, who wants her gay bar to be legit in the town of Shannon, Miss. When she applied for her business license, it was instantly denied. The SPLC were notified and now, they have filed a federal lawsuit against the town, the mayor, and the aldermen.
The complaint notes how their actions are discriminatory towards Pat and the 14th Amendments.
I wish her the best in this battle and I hope the townsfolk are not complete assholes about this.
