Gay Push In Montana

Montana may seem like an unlikely place for a gay rights fight, but a recent survey suggests the state’s ripe for change.

A poll of 600 residents shows that the majority support expanding non-discrimination legislation to include the homos. And the news obviously pleases State Senator Christine Kaufmann, who’s also the Executive Director of the Montana Human Rights Network.

Said Kaufmann: “We really need to launch an educational effort so that people understand they’re not alone in these kinds of feelings… When they accept and understand that employment discrimination is wrong no matter who it’s directed at, that hate crimes are wrong no matter who it’s directed at.”
