"We all know someone that can be a positive supporter of LGBTQIA rights in Nebraska whether it be an individual supporter volunteering their time or a business that will publicly support the LGBTQIA community. We simply need to make that connection and get them on board with us. The more supporters we have the easier the conversation becomes on passing equal rights which in turn will keep talented LGBTQIA individuals in our community".
