What is a "safe space" and why don't you allow bigotry at this festival?  
Safe space means a space free of racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia. In other words it means a space that is respectful of all walks of life. Everyone is welcome and everyone belongs.

Because we stand in solidarity with our trans friends and the fight against HB 2.
