From Associated Press:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The city hosting this year’s NBA All-Star game has long enjoyed a reputation as a welcoming place for the gay and lesbian community. New Orleans is home to one of the country’s oldest gay bars, the gay celebration Southern Decadence draws nearly 200,000 people yearly, and gay and lesbian authors flock here for the Saints and Sinners literary festival.
All of that acceptance will be on full display this weekend in a not-so-subtle statement about equality. The city of Charlotte was supposed to host the All-Star game Sunday, but the NBA moved it to New Orleans when North Carolina passed “the bathroom bill,” which limits protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people.
