Please visit to learn more about our Year Two efforts, as we mark the anniversary (June 15) of the terrible vote against equality in Holland, MI (USA). On June 16, 2011, Until Love Is Equal formed and we've been working ever since - to find a loving, fair and moral conclusion to the absence of liberty and safety from harm in Holland, MI. One vulnerable minority is being left out, which is un-American, and we can do be better.

Mayor Kurt Dykstra, Todd Whiteman, Nancy DeBoer, Myron Tretheway, and Brian Burch voted instead to preserve landlords’ right to refuse housing to LGBT residents of Holland, to for employers’ right to refuse jobs to LGBT workers.
