Unacceptable. Hate like this hurts ALL of us…

Arson burns down lesbians’ home.

Carol Ann and Laura Stutte are a same-sex couple who have been together for more than 16 years. They celebrated an anniversary weekend, only to return to find that their dream home has been burned to the ground in an anti- gay hate crime. Their insurance company definitely delayed payment on the damages.

In September, an arsonist destroyed their home to mere ashes, leaving only a garage standing. On the side of the garage, the arsonists spray-painted the word “QUEERS” in big, black letters. A month before the arson, Carol Ann and Laura received several homophobic threats, including being told by a neighbor: 

“Do you know what is better than one dead queer? Two dead queers.” 

Five months after their house was torched to the ground, Carol Ann and Laura have not received a single penny from their home insurance company — American National Property and Casualty (ANPAC). Facing financial disaster, the Stuttes have been forced to make mortgage payments and insurance payments — or else be dropped by the company.

Carol Ann and Laura need your support right now.

Sign the Petition to tell ANPAC to honor their policy and help the Stuttes rebuild their lives.


This makes me unbelievably angry.
