A South Carolina where everyone is equal.
To secure equal civil and human rights for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender South Carolinians and their families.
It all began at Middleton Plantation in Charleston.
In February 2002, thirty gay and lesbian leaders and community allies from across South Carolina gathered in Charleston at Middleton Plantation to talk about the state of our state. It was at this historic meeting that SC Equality was formed.
That meeting (thanks to the efforts of Linda Ketner) was the first time so many representatives from all over the state came together. For three days, the group discussed the status of the LGBT community, the weaknesses of our community organizing, the strengths in our existing organizations, and the serious need for legislative advocacy, political power, and statewide coordination.
