And -- local gay rights group in Lexington was getting ready for their and their annual pride festival.
So they -- some teachers so they went over to hands on original and they asked them to produce their their teachers for them.
Let me yes.
That it would -- that's right they did not as a matter of fact had the older hands on original told them that.
That they they could not do -- because they were Christian company.
However they said there will be more than happy to help help them find a T shirt company.
That would match their prices.
In the event they wanted to go somewhere else so the Medicare rights organizations I'm happy about -- -- -- said absolutely not and they compared to their situation to that in the 1960s.
In the south though with the civil rights movement.
And they said today it's all about equality it's not about going somewhere else.
So they filed a human rights complaint alleging that this T -- company has discriminated.
Against them because they refused to.
Create this teacher for their gay pride festival will legally what's what's happening here.
Well I had a chance to talk to the human rights commission -- in Lexington and they confirmed that there is an investigation under way.
And they say even though the company did in fact help an offer to find another T -- company.
That doesn't have any bearing in this case at all it's gonna take about six months for this -- to play out but the fallout already beginning to happen.
Lexington it is usually is a southern city and I had I didn't realize this business was the case but to their -- this is openly gay.
And has been very vocal about this and he says that that that discrimination is not -- -- just uncalled for.
And so we understand the city's school system has already canceled their teacher contracts with the company.

Find themselves in a similar situation they could file human rights complaints as well.
But I think at the end of the day a lot of people are saying wait a second.
