South Carolina Equality, a statewide LGBT advocacy and education group, is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its organization’s official, state-issued license plates.

The plates, which have the organization’s name and logo emblazoned on them, were released last year. Since then, more than 400 plates have been sold. A portion of plate fees go directly to SC Equality.

SC Equality says South Carolina is one of only two states nationwide with a pro-equality license plate.
