Six Words -- The Television Documentary

Jul 9, 2013 Full story: www.indiegogo.com 25

A documentary on gay rights in Jacksonville, FL -- one of the largest cities in U.S. without job and housing protection for LGBTQ citizens.

A short video is also on YouTube @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlnWy5jyqOQ

For some reason the Editors on the Jacksonville, FL forum won't allow this story and many other gay/lesbian related ones to be posted there.

Thanks for posting. Let us show everyone how bigoted Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida is when it comes to LGBT equality.

You should read where it is a felony for a same-sex couples to even ask for a marriage license in Indiana.

Also, is Mississippi they denied a gay bar to establish in a small town there because it caters to gays and is not Christian in that community's eyes. So I guess straight bars, drunk rednecks, and female pole dancers are the true definition of Christianity huh?

There have been a lot of gay rights issues in Jacksonville and news articles out there that never show up in their real-time news nor does their roboblogger pick anything up. I really wonder if someone is viewpoint discriminating.

Thamnks for the link. It's on Topix now as a story.

This is clearly religious discrimination. The bigots should be sued and forced to pay a big settlement.

It's more like a Jacksonville editor is killing the G&L stories as soon as they appear.

After all, keep in mind the number of times some troll has told many of us to get off THEIR forum.

This nation's conservative heterosexuals have raised a generation of spoiled brats with entitlement issues.

I don't ever recall anyone complaining about other flags being flown in PUBLIC PARKS! It's only when the Rainbow flag shows up that they have a hissy fit!

These people can't seem to distinguish between a courthouse or other government building and PUBLIC SPACE! But what do you expect from people who think the words "ALL citizens" in the Constitution really means "the citizens we approve of!

Rapists, murders, and child molesters have more protection under the law than we do! And these "moral chriSTAINS" seem fine with that!

That Indiana story is actually not the case. It's a felony to put false information on the Marriage License Application.

We need to report these people that do that but I'm not sure how but I want to bring as much attention as possible to viewpoint discriminators.

Also when I sign in and go to the Gay forum and then look up or click on a link to go in the Jacksonville Florida Topix forum I'm not recognized as being signed into Topix on Jacksonville Topix but am still signed in to the Gay Topix and I have to sign in again to be recognized as being signed into Jacksonville's forum. Why am I having to sign into Topix twice?

You've made excellent points. Topix needs to get rid of that editor doing the censoring.

I just created the following poll on TOPIX:

Is TOPIX allowing editors to censor Gay and stories on the Jacksonville FL Forum?

I also noticed that any of the articles that have LGBT related news (like the Children's Museum case) that have shown up in the recent past (which is rare) Jacksonville's newswire and also connected to the gay/lesbian forum when posted on may show up on the gay forum but not on the Jacksonville board even though it is listed as being connected with it which leads me to believe even more something is fishy and rigged about their board.

I see you were able to get it in the forum but not on the news wall but regardless I'm glad I found it and that it was posted.

By the end of the week we will have a national story making the rounds about this. Many blogs like "LezGetReal" and "Queerty" will pick it up and probably Huffington Post as well.

The backlash has begun and we must fight back every way we can.
