Funding Second Class Citizens

Check out this incredible video about the history of gay rights in the US. You’ll recognize Alfred Kinsey, Dan Savage, Hillary Clinton, President Obama, Harvey Milk, Rachel Maddow, Sarah Silverman, Ellen DeGeneres, and so many others. Unfortunately there are also a number of young men who most of us never got to meet because they ended their lives as a result of bullying, or their lives were ended for them as a result of homophobia, hatred and violence.

Watch the clip above and, if you can, donate on Kickstarter. And of course do what you can in your own communities to make things better right now. Take a stand against bullying. Support a kid (or adult) in need. Support laws and policies that offer equals rights to everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity – including the right to marry.
