'We support it': NAACP endorses LGBTQ Equality Act

The organization’s support came into question earlier this week after Gregory T. Angelo, the former president of gay conservative group Log Cabin Republicans, implied the NAACP was not behind the bill. In an opinion piece titled "Don't Fall for the 'Equality Act,'" Angelo stated that "African American legacy civil rights groups are absent" from an "exhaustive list" of organizations supporting the Equality Act. He specifically cited the NAACP.

“Picture walking into your child’s preschool for mandatory transgender story hour,”
????!!!! SAY WHAT!? Do they have mandatory 'story hour' of male, for males, and female for females! All the excuses brought can be solved with common sense: Shower Stales and information about sexuality should be private. Who in the hell wants to know what I do in my bedroom when they interview me for a job or give me a diploma!
There are plenty of pervert supervisors and employers who want to know as they get off on knowing. The people screaming about these ridiculous things are phobic because of their own tendencies they are attempting to hide or deny.

An injunction would have allowed conversion therapy to continue while the lawsuit works its way through court.
