Indianapolis is home to the NCAA, which is questioning Indiana's new "religious objections" law and the effect the law may have on LGBT citizens and visitors.

You probably have friends or family in Indiana, right? And if you're a basketball fan, you're likely looking forward to next weekend's NCAA men's Final Four in Indianapolis, right? Or maybe you've been considering spending some time exploring Indiana's beautiful state parks, vibrant cities, and exceptional museums?

But...

On March 26, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a "religious objections" bill into law. The law will take effect in July and has raised concerns from the Indianapolis-based NCAA, the Washington-based Human Rights Campaign, and other groups that Indiana has legalized discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens and visitors. In response, SalesForce.com's CEO immediately posted on Twitter that the company would cancel all programs that might involve his company's customers or employees traveling to Indiana "to face discrimination." Major gay-rights advocacy groups are voicing the same concerns, and other businesses are expected to follow SalesForce.com's lead.

So...
