Indiana, not known for gay rights, gets nation's first LGBT license plate

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana is now the only state in the country to offer license plates promoting awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender causes.

The new plates will be available beginning in February throughout the state and feature six hands in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple, which is the logo of the Indiana Youth Group.

That organization provides LGBT training for schools and service agencies and works to promote tolerance.

The Indiana Youth Group had been trying to get the LGBT plate approved since 2010.

Indiana’s American Civil Liberties Union had sued the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles in September after the Indian Youth Group’s request for the plate was twice denied.
