The Human Rights Campaign has begun its push to change attitudes in deep red Southern States on equality for gay people. The campaign targets Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas. "If we can move the South, we can move the nation," says one of the people featured in this film.

It also includes clips from Tippi McCullough and Barb Mariani, whose marriage in New Mexico led to McCullough's forced departure from a teaching job at Mount St. Mary Academy.

The HRC campaign in Arkansas will include an office and staff of three. More to come.
