Yesterday, the Reason Rally announced the addition of Eddie Izzard to the roster.
Today — and this may be even more interesting news — they’re announcing that Nate Phelps will be there, too.
Phelps is the (estranged) son of Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelps. Nate severed ties with his notorious family decades ago and now speaks out in favor of LGBT rights and raises awareness of religion-based child abuse.
Considering that we now know his notorious family also plans to attend the Rally, that should make for some interesting stories…
Nate’s presence alone is a testament to the fact that you can break free from even the most religious of families and live a happier life without fear and hatred.
