COLUMBIA - In responses to HB2051, Missouri's "Don't Say Gay" Bill, PROMO (Promoting Equality for All Missourians) video taped stories from members of sexuality and gender identiy based communities and allies at The Centre Project (TCP) Thursday from 5 to7 p.m.

HB2051 would eliminate discussion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in public schools, prohibit teachers from addressing bullying based on sexual orientation, and likely ban all gay-straight alliance organizations in the state of Missouri.

TCP is Mid-Missouri's first and only LGBTQ resource center. The TCP board member Jamie Lenz says, "The meaning and purpose of the event is to get people a place to come to voice their opinion." He also says, the TCP board member will put the video on the PROMO website as an effort to be against the bill. "The more people we get on the website,the more support we have, the more power we have to stop it."

MU student John Cummins says the bill would hurt young people by not being able to tell who you are.

TPC board members receive about 30 replys from their facebook to support stopping the bill and they will hold several more this kind of activities in the following week.
