Why It Gets Better: You Could Ring the NYSE Closing Bell

On May 9, just one day after North Carolina voted to give no recognition at all to LGBT families, the Family Equality Council, and organization that “connects, supports, and represents the one million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender parents in this country and the two million children they are raising,” rung the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
