Out in Rural America

Stephen Skinner and his brother Andrew

October 11, 2010

Growing up gay or lesbian in small-town America has unique challenges, including being open, honest, and safe in one’s home, school, work, and community. A trial lawyer and civil rights advocate, Stephen Skinner shares his personal and professional perspectives on gay life in rural America and the struggle for fairness and equality for all. Skinner is founder and president of Fairness West Virginia, the first statewide LGBT advocacy organization in West Virginia.

Cosponsored by the GLBT Commission and Pride Alliance.
