Minnesota Atheists support equal rights under the law. This support includes ending discrimination based on sexual orientation. A well known example in which GLBT people are denied equal rights is in marriage. Other ways GLBT people are discriminated without protection from the law include employment, housing, adoption and fertility treatments, and being open about sexual orientation in the military.
So, to raise awareness and to promote equality under the law, Minnesota Atheists will be present at the Duluth Superior Gay Pride Festival on August 30, 2008 from 11 AM to 7 PM at Bayfront Festival Park. Whether you are gay or not, stop by and show your support. Equal rights for all does nothing but make humanity better.
