Chris Strider, an activist at Virginia Commonwealth University sent this email to our friend Daniel Franzese, who forwarded it to us:
On January 27, 2009, high school and college students
across the country will
be wearing the same T-shirt to school as a way to show unity
within a community in
the fight for LGBT equality, particularly marriage
equality. This protest, called “Equality On Campus Day” is occurring a week
after Obama’s inauguration to remind
him of his promises to repeal both the Defense of Marriage
Act and the “Don’t Ask,
Don’t Tell” policy in today’s US military.
To buy your T-shirt today, click here. (The regular T-shirt is only $10…not bad). All proceeds will go to Lambda Legal,
an organization in California currently battling to repeal Prop 8. View more
of their landmark cases for LGBT equality here.

Let’s make this one just as powerful!
Whether you’re gay, straight, bisexual, or just
questioning, be a part of this movement today! (t/y Daniel)
