    One year after the election, WE are still working for the equality of LGBTQ people in Tennessee.  Your support with a monthly donation sustains the work:

    *Fighting back against numerous anti-LGBTQ bills in the TN General Assembly.

    *Helping local advocates and organizations stop the elimination of LGBTQ protections in Knox County Schools and stop an effort to ban drag performance in Portland, TN.

    *Registering voters, growing programs like Boro Pride, and bringing a vital health care conference to East TN.

    *Beinga voice for you in the media because our state's residents need to know that someone is speaking out for the values of equality and inclusion in the public square.

    WE can resist discrimination AND build equality with your monthly support.  If you prefer to make a one-time donation, you can do so at this link. Thank you!

    Dear Governor Haslam,

    We ask you to veto SB1085/HB1111.  This bill, as the Attorney General has noted, is broadly written.  Its vagueness could result in conflicts with existing laws about judicial interpretation.  These conflicts are likely to cause discrimination against LGBTQ people, particularly with respect to marriage, adoption, and legal documents.  This bill risks subjecting Tennessee to the same scrutiny that North Carolina has received.  We cannot afford hundreds of millions of dollars in economic boycotts and sanctions.  Please, veto this bill so we can avoid judicial chaos and costly discrimination.  Thank you for considering our views.

    The map shown above represents mental health providers in Tennessee who provide affirmative services, especially in regards to sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. Please click on the top right of the map to make it larger so you can search your address/location to find counselors close to you and more information about them (e.g., website, e-mail address, insurance options, etc.).

    The "Counseling Discrimination Law" (formerly HB1840) passed in 2016 highlights the need for counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health providers to speak out for inclusive and affirmative practices.  We urge any mental health provider to endorse the statement at the bottom of the page. 

    As counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers serving clients in Tennessee, we affirm that we do not discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity and we will not use our own sincerely held principles as a reason to turn clients away. 

    Note:  The Tennessee Equality Project and the Tennessee Equality Project Foundation reserve the right to refuse membership to any provider or revoke a provider's listing.

    If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]
