Christian printing company refuses to print college magazine because there are LGBT people


A ‘Christian’ printing company in Alabama, US, has refused to print an issue of a college magazine because of its LGBT-inclusive content. Interstate Printing representatives cite their “First Amendment Right” to refuse to print images of drag queens, queer folk and people of different religions, citing their religious beliefs as an excuse. University of South Alabama magazine Due South was denied printing by the Mobile company because their latest issue, which discusses diversity, does not align with their Christian faith. Defiant editors have not let themselves be detracted, however, and have sought printing from a different company instead. Editor-in-chief Sara Boone was informed about it via email and said the publishers expressed a willing to print them in future with a different content. Rupturing the magazine’s seven year-long relationship with the printing company, Boone explained that the company had quoted $5,000 for 3,500 copies of the magazine.
