Celebrities Urge Georgia to Veto Anti-Gay Discrimination Bill, Reveal Plan to Boycott
A group of actors, directors, filmmakers, and more have gotten together to write a letter to Governor Deal of Georgia to say they will protest working in the state if H.B. 757 passes.
The bill is an anti-gay discrimination bill which will allow religious leaders to deny performing same-sex marriages.
“As leaders in the entertainment industry, we have deep concerns about [the bill] which would sanction discrimination against LGBT people and others in Georgia,” the letter reads. “We pride ourselves on running inclusive companies, and while we have enjoyed a positive partnership on productions in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere if any legislation sanctioning discrimination is signed into state law.”
Celebrities who have attached their name to the letter include Matt Bomer, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Kristin Chenoweth, Zoe Kravitz, Dustin Lance Black, Seth MacFarlane, Aaron Sorkin, and more. Read the entire letter here.
