badge250x250At the Oscars yesterday evening several celebrities including the entire cast of Milk and Anne Hathaway’s father all wore a white knot.  Why you ask?  To show their support for marriage equality.  You can find more information here.  If you make a donation the organization will send you a white knot free.  Otherwise send a self-addressed stamped envelope to this address and they will send a white knot back free of charge.

White Knot For Equality

P.O Box 691517  

West Hollywood, CA 90069

The White Knot is the symbol for marriage equality. Wear it every day to show your support and to create conversation. Use it to tell someone today that equal rights are important to everyone. Share the White Knot and spread the word that all loving couples deserve the same legal rights, benefits, and respect that civil marriage bestows.

Visibility is the goal. See where White Knots are appearing.

Whether you are gay, straight, or otherwise, please show your support by wearing the Knot and telling people why you are wearing it. Wear your White Knot to work, to school, to your place of worship. Together, we will keep the topic at the top of people’s minds and keep the conversation going.

 Things You Can Say…
when someone asks you why you are wearing a White Knot
or when you have the opportunity to talk about Marriage Equality.

 

1 I wear a White Knot because I support Marriage Equality. Everyone should have the right to tie the knot.
2 Marriage is about committed couples—all committed couples—who want to make a lifelong promise to take care of and be responsible for each other. This can only strengthen family and society.
3 Denying committed couples the security and legal protections of marriage hurts them; it’s wrong to make it harder for committed couples to take care of and be responsible for each other.
4 People can have different beliefs and still treat everyone fairly. That’s why our constitution exists to protect everyone equally, including minorities.
5 What if you were told that you couldn’t marry the person you loved? What would that do to you? And what if you got married, and someone tried to take it away?
