Video of the Day: Funny or Die’s Tennessee Tourism Video

Sometimes laughing is better than crying, and Funny or Die seems to get that. In response to Tennessee’s anti-gay counseling bill currently pending on the governor’s desk, they made a tongue in cheek “anti-gay tourism” video. It put the smile on my face that I didn’t even know I needed.

Apparently, these videos are a thing! I totally snickered at Mississippi’s (we’re even worse than North Carolina!). If you’re in need of some giggles to help process the terrible that is the current anti-LGBTQ political climate, I highly recommend this rabbit hole.
