Video – TN Cafe Owner Martha Boggs Explains Why She Kicked Anti-Gay State Rep Stacey Campfield Out Of Her Restaurant

Last week we reported that Martha Boggs owner of Bistro at the Bijou in Knoxville, TN made a stand for the LGBT community and kicked out anti-gay Tennessee state Senator Stacey Campfield out of her restaurant during a Sunday afternoon seating.

Campfield is on record saying that “AIDS happened because a gay man had sex with a monkey”

Martha explains:  “That was done in part…to protest some of the things [Campfield] has said in the media particularly about AIDS, HIV and the gay community in general. I think he’s a bully and he needed to be stood up to.”

YOU are a HERO Martha Boggs. 

And don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
