NYC queer punk duo PWR BTTM (Ben Hopkins and Live Bruce) were picketed by a crew of anti-LGBT protesters at their Jackson, Mississippi show.

The band seemed to take the fervent hatred in stride, with a beautifully courageous statement of pride against bigotry...

...and this magnificent thing:

To maintain PWR BTTM's pledge for each of their shows being a safe, inclusive concert spaces and restrooms for their fans, the pair moved their set to the back of the Big Sleepy's venue, and the venue covered the front windows so any view of the Christian extremists outside would be blocked.

Big Sleepy's also released a statement on the incident:
