Living in NC feels like living in a state of regression when it comes to LGBTQ issues. For example, we cannot get an anti-bullying bill passed in our state legislature because religious right conservatives bully legislators to vote it down, let alone for domestic partner benefits or discussion of gay marriage.

It is surreal, to say the least.
