Welcome to My Homophobic State

I live in Indiana, ostensibly a place where queer folks cannot get an appropriate florist for their wedding and restaurants have the right not to serve two women eating together if, somehow, they are read as gay. (How will the waitress know, I wonder? If they are holding hands? If they have rainbow flags on their backpacks? If they carry in a copy of The Well of Loneliness to read aloud to each other over bites of a pulled pork sandwich?)
