Sep. 09, 2013 @ 09:37 AM

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The Fairness West Virginia Institute is taking its traveling film and photo exhibit to Morgantown.

The 15-minute film “Faces of Fairness” will be screened at 6 p.m. Monday at the West Virginia University College of Law.

The film and exhibit feature 14 lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender West Virginians.

The discussions that follow focus on issues ranging from adoption rights and medical benefits to hospital visitation rights and discrimination in employment and housing.

WVU graduate student Michael White, who appears in the film, is among the planned speakers.

Fairness West Virginia estimates there are more than 57,000 LGBT people in the state who face discrimination on a daily basis.
