In order to make the state of Utah more gay-friendly, Human Rights Campaign decided to organize a tour in 17 cities.

The objective is to show the rights that LGBT people do not have and the discriminations when we're looking for a job or a house.

"A disproportionate number of Utahns believe in basic fairness for LGBT people, believe that we should be protected from workplace discrimination, believe that we should be free from violence and fear and intimidation", HRC President Joe Solmonese said to ABC4.

Salt Lake Tribune reported recently that there is 63% of the population which is oppose to the marriage equality but 77% support anti-discrimination laws.

HRC will also go in some cities of Nebraska, Kansas, Alabama and Florida.
