Kevin McCaffery tends to llamas and dozens of other animals on his animal sanctuary, but times got rough after he was fired from his job at a daycare center in Ashland, Kentucky for being gay. According to BuzzFeed, he was mocked and teased by co-workers who called him twinkle toes until he was forced to resign. Though he sued for wrongful termination, and the judge agreed he had been mistreated, McCaffery’s case was thrown out of court since Kentucky discrimination laws don’t protect LGBT employees…which is exactly why we need the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
