Boycott us because of lawmakers’ LGBT policies.
Marriage discrimination is the law of the land, and it really sucks. However, boycotting our state ignores the almost 60,000 LGBT Mississippians who have to deal with the fallout. Don’t avoid us because of the politics. We need more people to visit Mississippi and support LGBT businesses, artists, organizations, and events. Recent legislation has increased support and love among the Mississippi community, because when it comes down to it, our people accept everyone. Mississippians love to entertain and share our state with the rest of the world. We aren’t known as the hospitality state for nothin’. A few years ago, the baker and owner at Campbell’s Bakery in Jackson launched the “If You’re Buying, We’re Selling” campaign so that businesses could take a public stance and help customers identify LGBT friendly shops.
