USDA teams up with Iowa law school and Cyndi Lauper to celebrate lesbian farmers

It’s tough being gay and living in rural areas – or so says the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

That’s why the agency known for grading your beef is teaming up with LGBT groups and Drake University’s law school to host an “LGBT Rural Summit” on Thursday.

#RuralPride Campaign: LGBT Rural Summit Series is part of an effort by the USDA, the National Center for Lesbian Rights and the True Colors Fund – an LGBT homelessness group started by singer Cyndi Lauper – to reach out to LGBT people who live in rural areas.
