It’s hard to believe that only six years ago the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state laws banning same sex marriage. What a milestone. But. Stigma is still a fact of life, and the FBI reports that hate crimes related to sexual and gender identity are on the rise. Meanwhile state governments are taking up anti-LGBTQ legislation at an alarming rate. How are things going in North Carolina? How much does the oppression of stigma impact the mental health of this community? Join us for a discussion with Kori Hennessey of the LGBT Center of Raleigh, Rebby Kern of Equality North Carolina, and Alex Vitagliano of the Frank Harr Foundation of Wilmington.
