“Several states are actively demonstrating their opposition to the law Mississippi passed on Tuesday which discriminates against the LGBT community.
Vermont, Washington state and New York‘s governors all banned official state-funded or sponsored travel to Mississippi on Tuesday. The District of Columbia is considering a similar measure.
“Discrimination is not a New York value. We believe our diversity is our greatest strength, and we will continue to reject the politics of division and exclusion,” said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) in a statement. “This Mississippi law is a sad, hateful injustice against the LGBT community, and I will not allow any non-essential official travel to that state until it is repealed.”
