In its municipal survey released in November, the Human Rights Campaign scored Baton Rouge a two out of 100 based on the policies and services the city has in place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
Only Montgomery, Al., Frankfort, Ky. and Jefferson City, Mo. scored lower.
So we wondered if Baton Rouge’s dismal score is indicative of life for LGBT people here.
Past the stuffy, official government buildings of downtown Baton Rouge, you'll find the city's oldest commercial building. Up the creaky stairs off Lafayette Street and beyond the reception area is a big open room. Sometimes the design world gets a little noisy.
WRKF intern Claire Ohlsen visited the workspace and sent us this audio postcard.
