Blair Durkee, a transgender advocate, is calling on Senator Bright, the sponsor of S 1203 in South Carolina, to meet with her and others.
It's believed Senator Bright missed the deadline as a strategy to avoid putting it to a vote in the Senate General Committee, where it was expected to lose.
"It's just not normal and then you glorify, or it seems to me, that the promotion at USC Upstate is a glorification of same-sex orientation. That's not an explanation of 'I was born this way.' That's recruiting," said South Carolina state Senator Mike Fair (R), commenting on a segment of University of South Carolina Upstate's upcoming LGBT symposium. The one-woman show, satirically titled "How to Become a Lesbian in 10 days or Less," has been cancelled.
