Finally, Rep. Stan Lee (R-Lexington), a nightmare to Kentucky's gay population, will be opposed!

Finally, one of the biggest nightmares to Kentucky's gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and intersex community, Representative Stan Lee (R-Lexington) (pictured) has competition in the upcoming 2010 election.  Lee is not only a nightmare to the LGBTI community, but everyone who wants to move Kentucky forward and stands for equality, justice, and progress.   

The election is closer than you think considering the primary is in May 2010.  Representative Lee has run unopposed in the last several elections.  

Representative Lee has made a name for himself in the gay community for attempting to ban domestic-partner benefits at the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, and all other Kentucky schools.  

Representative Lee, and one of his key allies, Representative Joseph Fischer (R) from Northern Kentucky have also tried to remove the ability of Kentucky cities to add people as a protected class.  Currently, Covington, Lexington, and Louisville have city ordinances which prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Over the next several months, United We Stand will be publishing interviews with candidates across the Commonwealth to gauge their support of our community.  Our first interview will be published tomorrow, it is someone we strongly support.  Additional interviews will be posted bi-weekly or monthly. 


Below is Representative Lee's competition.






Previous stories about Representative Lee and his obvious dislike of Kentucky's LGBTI community:
Having conservative lawmakers is one thing; but having lawmakers in office which target specific communities is unfair, unjust, and morally wrongLee recently ran for Kentucky Attorney General against Jack Conway, but was defeated.


The Pledge of Allegiance to the Kentucky Flag says:

"I pledge allegiance to the Kentucky flag, and to the Sovereign State for which it stands, one Commonwealth, blessed with diversity, natural wealth, beauty, And grace from on High."


Perhaps Representative Lee forgot the diversity part of the pledge?
