GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

About 50 protesters opposed to House Bill 1523 stood in the rain for a rally at the corner of Hwy. 90 and Hwy. 49 in Gulfport.

They chanted, waved signs and marched in their opposition to the bill, which they believe is discriminatory. The group includes a variety of ages, races and sexual orientations.

Before marching to the highway corner, the group had a vocal encounter with a man carrying a large Bible and taking issue with the group's stance. After several, sometimes heated, exchanges, those gathered for the protest marched in unity away from the dissenter.
