Best New Tumblr

Gay Faces Gay Places

Staff Pick

When, at the request of Rep. Garry Smith, the S.C. House Ways and Means Committee voted to pull $52,000 in funding from the College of Charleston because the school had handed out copies of the award-winning, gay-themed graphic novel Fun Home to incoming freshmen, members of the gay activist group Southerners On New Ground launched a Tumblr site featuring photos of Lowcountry residents proudly supporting the book and condemning the cowardly actions of the state. Although the state House recently approved the measure, the Gay Faces Gay Places folks, including City Paper contributor Jenna Lyles, are still fighting the good fight. Here's hoping they come out on top, and Smith ends up on the bottom.
