Supreme Court to revisit LGBTQ rights – this time with a wedding-website designer, not a baker
Another case from Colorado about free speech and same-sex marriage has made its way to the Court: 303 Creative v. Elenis. Graphic artist Lorie Smith is the founder and owner of a studio called 303 Creative. According to court documents, Smith is generally willing to serve LGBTQ clients. However, she intends to begin designing wedding websites and is unwilling to create them for same-sex couples, saying it would go against her Christian beliefs.Under Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act, though, it is discriminatory and illegal to refuse services to someone on the basis of “disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, or ancestry.” The outcome of this case will likely be determined near the end of the Court’s term in June 2023.

“I have known Ricky for years as an enthusiastic, involved and dedicated civic leader, activist and event planner/producer. He has been the driving force in encouraging local communities in the development of Human Relations Commissions. Ricky’s Pride PAC was formed two years ago to support candidates who believe in an inclusive community, and who advocate for those less fortunate. His yearly events, such as the National Honesty Day held at my home, bring together community leaders, activists, elected officials and candidates to share ideas, commit to action and leave energized.”
