    I know many young LGBT professional that left Mississippi for that very reason. They took their talents, their money and their children with them. What a loss!

      I left 27 years ago for exactly that reason. Everywhere I lived I met *successful* LGBTQ MS natives who had fled the state. It's a real talent drain, and it's a problem. But I'm baaaaack now, and this time I'm tackling things head on. We really need to do something about our best and brightest feeling they have no alternative but to leave the state!

    I hope y'all know that the governor's son is openly gay, but Bryant keeps shoving the son back into the closet to protect his political career. This is not "outing" — the son *is* out, openly living as gay in Texas. The only "outing" happening here is how craven Bryant is that he would gleefully sign a bill making his own son a second-class citizen in his own state with a grinning Tony Perkins, leader of hate group American Family Association, at his side. I tried to sign in using Facebook, because I have no need to post anonymously, but your system wouldn't allow it.

    I am ashamed of my home state. We are a straight married couple and left in 2008. Best thing we ever did. The economy is far from stable in MS and is funded 3 to 1 buy the federal government. Bryant is a spineless joke and represents everything progressives in the state are trying to change. He and his generation are getting old and dying off; the mentality is dying with them. When these people are gone, MS will progress. Until then, the economy and quality of life indices in the state will continue to plummet toward the abyss. The state ranks dead last, or nearly dead last already. The next step is implosion.
