A Billboard From An LGBT Right's Group Is Now In Kim Davis' Hometown

The billboard is designed to "expose how the anti-LGBT movement is selective" in what it defines as "traditional," according to the group that put it up.

Davis was jailed Sept. 3 after a judge found her in contempt of court.


Shortly after her release from jail, non-profit organization Planting Peace erected a billboard in Davis' hometown of Morehead, Kentucky. The billboard is directed specifically at Davis.

Planting Peace

It reads:

"Dear Kim Davis, The fact that you can't sell your daughter for three goats and a cow means we've already redefined marriage."

Planting Peace told BuzzFeed the purpose of the billboard:

The intent of this billboard is to expose how the anti-LGBT movement is selective in what rules to follow and how they choose to define "traditional" institutions or values.

It's important and relevant to call this out, because the actions of Kim Davis and the messages from the anti-LGBTQ movement are not simply about a political or religious debate.

There are LGBTQ youth across the world who are taking their lives at an alarming rate because of these messages from society that make them feel broken or less than. We have to meet hate with love, intolerance with compassion.


Planting Peace President Aaron Jackson told BuzzFeed his group's goal with these kinds of efforts is to let LGBT people know they are "loved, valued, supported, and beautiful."
