The Right to Custom T-Shirts


In Kentucky, the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission ruled Hand On Originals violated the city's fairness ordinance when it refused to print t-shirts for the Lexington Pride Festival. The owners of Hand On said they declined the order because they are Christians and could not support the message of the shirts. But the commission ruled the firm discriminated against the Gay and Lesbians Services Organization of Lexington.
