Broadway Babe Bites Back

AudraMcDonald

Despite marked opposition to the SB 101 bill, Governor Mike Pence signed the oppressive Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law as of yesterday.  Hopefully, the organizers of Gen Con follow through with their threat and pull out of Indiana once their contract with the state ends.

Regardless of the gross negligence by Pence, for basic human rights, his ignorant act let loose a wildfire of backlash; not the least of which includes some choice tweets from celebrated Broadway Star, Audra McDonald.  In the wake of the controversy, her Twitter took off the kid gloves and exploded with righteous ranting:

Talk about being burdened with glorious purpose. I’ve never wanted to yell out: “You GO, Gurl” so much in my entire misbegotten life. It is because of vocal and brave allies like her, that the LGBT community finds strength in the knowledge that we’re not alone in the fight for equality.

PS: I need it to say it again; YOU GO, GURL!!!!
