Last month, Queerty reported about Greenville, Michigan teenager Justin Barr, who met with his city council to request it adopt a non-discrimination ordinance . Barr, 17, also campaigned for the Eureka Township, where the city of Greenville is located, to adopt a non-discrimination ordinance.

Barr was met with much support, but also some resistance, mainly from failed U.S. Senate candidate and American Family Association of Michigan President Gary Glenn, who wrote a letter requesting that no new ordinances be considered, citing nonsense about such laws threatening the safety of women and children in public restrooms.
