Tupelo, Mississippi is the home to the very anti-gay American Family Association. In fact, the AFA was labeled a "hate group" last November by the Southern Poverty Law Center for their demonizing propaganda about homosexuality.
On Monday, October 10th, a group of equality advocates are holding "Give Hate a Holiday" in Tupelo to protest the stance of the AFA. At noon, there will be a demonstration outside the Tupelo Link Centre, and then at 2 p.m., there's a free public screening of Out in the Silence," a film about love, hate, and the quest for justice and equality in America's heartland. That takes place at Tupelo's Link Centre Concert Hall.
At 4 p.m. in the Link Centre Reception Hall, there will be an information and networking fair with representatives of local, state, and national groups and organizations to learn how to get involved and take action.
For more information, check out the group's Facebook page.
