LGBT Push Back Giveaway

Hey, guys. You may remember the policy disaster in Indiana a few weeks ago when their bigot governor signed into law a "Religious Freedom" act that basically allowed businesses to refuse their services to anyone in the LGBT community simply because that prospective patron is (or is perceived to be) LGBT.

If that wasn't bad enough, there was the fundraiser for the cranks who own something called Memories Pizza. Those people said they'd refuse to cater a same-sex wedding if someone asked them to. I know. It's a ridiculous assumption. What self-respecting member of the Community would have their wedding catered by a pizza place? So it's purely academic, except to the hate-filled religio-thugs. And that brings me to my point. There's an expression, "A fool and his money are soon parted." Some LGBT-hating individual set up a fund-raising page to "assist" this family in their time of hatred. They managed to net $842,000 from fellow bigots in just a few days.

That's why I'm talking to you today. I'm part of a group of authors, review bloggers, promotional sites, and others who are participating in this Push Back Giveaway. We hope to raise an equal or greater amount of money for LGBT charities with your help. As incentive, we've added the giveaway!

I invite you to check out the post, the rules, and the giveaway at DiverseReader for details.

Let's get busy raising money and giving stuff away! Push Back!
