NO to NC

Dearest Friends and Colleagues,

As a proud veteran of the home furnishings and interior design industries, I am

saddened, angered, and bewildered by the lack of action to boycott and defeat the

HB2 bill in North Carolina. Arguably, one of the most important industries in the

state with the power to make a difference, the home furnishings / interior design

industry leaders are remarkably silent in the face of such blatant discrimination.

With discrimination, it matters not who the targeted group is, as discrimination

lacks boundaries and eventually leaks everywhere. The LGBT community

is richly represented in our industries and has contributed so much to our

successes. They need and deserve our voices standing with them and against a law that is

about more than ‘just bathrooms’. I implore the industry leaders and members to speak

up, stand up, and even not show up at HP Market as a courageous stand against

discrimination in North Carolina. When this bill is defeated, I look forward to

returning to High Point Market.

Thank you Patrick J Hamilton for your stand and your demand…you inspired me.

In solidarity,                                LGBT Supportive

  1. Jody….you do not know me, my name is Gwen Fox and Rich Schell of Rich Designs in Colorado Springs thought I should get your newsletters. He was right…you are awesome. Rich owns a gallery filled with furniture, flowers and fine art…I am one of his artists.

    I want to thank you for your thoughts about the HB2 bill and North Carolina. Without people such as you who refuse to be silent and look the other way nothing would happen in the world.

    thanks gwen

    • Thanks, Gwen. I don’t know you (until now!) but I do know Rich and he is a favorite of mine….and we have our own mutual admiration society!!! It takes something to stand up and it is easier when we do it together. Your turn. :)

  2. Yes, it takes a village! I can’t believe how some States / people are so ignorant!! I have NEVER heard of a transgender person who has molested anyone. What about the perverts who are NOT transgender who molest in their respective bathrooms? Wake up people! Get educated. Say NO to HB2 bill in NC.

    • Thanks…and again, the bathroom thing is important, but more important is the ability to sue for discrimination, which HB2 eliminates. Keep sharing!!! oxo Jody
