Spartanburg County: Say yes to LGBT day!

      spartanburg, SC

Spartanburg County residents wanted a proclamation  from the county designating June 4, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) day.  

When organizers from Upstate Pride SC sent a request to Council Chairman Jim Horton for the proclamation he simply replied, "No."

Spartanburg County Council showed a total lack of respect, and it is time to change that

Tell the Spartanburg County Council to sign a proclamation declaring June 4, LGBT Day. 

Due to the overwhelming response in just 1 day to this petition I have upped the signature goal to 1250. Thanks and keep up the good work.

      Wow! Look at all these comments on the Advocate's article about Spartanburg County. Clearly there is a lot of support for an LGBT Day proclamation.

      News Channel 7 interviewed Jeff Horton for this report. As you can see, he showed very little respect to the LGBT community
