“A company that owns nearly every rentable billboard in the state of Georgia along the interstates has refused to rent billboards to Georgia Equality because of the billboards’ content,” writes GayOrbit. “It’s a standard based on discrimination. The purpose of Georgia Equality’s advertising campaign is to change those standards. So, when Mr. Locke, of Lamar Outdoor Advertising, tells you the signs are not up to community standards, what he is telling you is that he doesn’t want those standards to change.”

The problem isn’t that one company didn’t want to sell space for that billboard.

The problem is that one company “owns nearly every rentable billboard in the state of Georgia along the interstates.”

Break up the monopoly!
