Support LGBT Youth In Indiana

Most counties in Indiana do not have protection for LGBT people from discrimination. The recent changes to RFRA only protect LGBT folks in counties with those protections in place (Marion County where Indianapolis is DOES have those protections).  

When Memories Pizza said they wouldn't serve pizza at a same-sex wedding, they were completely within their legal rights and still are. These expressions of intolerance and the ensuing fundraiser for hundreds of thousands of dollars send a terrible message to LGBT youth who already face more bullying, social pressure and higher rates of suicide.

Take a minute and, instead of trolling Memories on Yelp and being angry about it on Facebook and Twitter, donate $10; do something positive that will have a direct impact on LGBT youth in the state of Indiana.

I believe that we can and should out raise them 2x.

All donations made are going directly from GoFundMe to Indiana Youth Group .  

IYG has been around since 1987 providing safe spaces and support for LGBT youth. They were founded "in response to the dismal suicide, homeless, and dropout rates of self-identified gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth in Indianapolis. "
