Tennessee Loves Target

ellyahnnaTarget.jpgTarget's trans-inclusive policies are under attack in Tennessee.  A Mt Juliet pastor's rant went viral and this week at a Hendersonville Target, protesters shouted religious wrath at employees and customers.  But we know that Tennessee loves Target and it's time to show it!

As former TEP Board member Ellyahnna Hall (pictured) notes:  

"I support Target for trying to provide a safe space for all people. I'm a trans woman and I've faced the dangers of not having access to restrooms that corespond to my gender identity. If opponents are really concerned with safety then let's focus on tougher rape laws and enforcing those, not creating a fake danger that doesn't exist."

Sign the petition statement and show Target some love.  We'll deliver hard copies of the petition to select Target locations in Tennessee.


Tennessee loves Target.  I support the company's transgender-inclusive policies and I will continue to shop at their stores.

    Target will always have my support. My husband worked there for 14 yrs, and as a same sex couple they offered insurance and other things several yrs before other companies started. Target has been awesome to us as a couple in many ways.

    I fully support Target’s goal to include all people as its welcome shoppers, without regard to gender orientation.

    I think Target is doing an amazing job of standing behind the transgender community. As a trans woman, I am ecstatic that there is at least one company that stands with us as allies. Being transgender is a daily struggle, especially with all of the bigots out there that will never be able to understand the Bible, no matter how much they quote scripture. As a Christ following (different from a “Christian”, because I actually understand and practice the love and acceptance Jesus gave us through the Word) trans woman, I have a profound respect for Target and will be shopping there as often as possible. I’m broke right now, in between jobs (comes with the struggle of being trans), but I’ll make it a point to buy everything through Target, wherever possible. Thank you, Target! We love you! God bless you all! <3
