DAY WITHOUT GAYS

We are calling for a nationwide strike and economic boycott by all members of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered community AND OUR STRAIGHT ALLIES on December 10th, 2008, International Human Rights Day.WHY SHOULD WE DO IT?Because LGBT workers, business owners, consumers and taxpayers contribute over $700 billion to the American economy and we deserve the same rights as all other Americans. Because marriage is a basic human right for ALL Americans, regardless of gender, race OR religion. (See the US Supreme Court Case LOVING v VIRGINIA).WHAT SHOULD WE DO?Strike! Call in gay, shut down your business, or just take the day off. Boycott! Don't buy anything, spend money or support the economy. Participate! Give back, fight back, build bridges to help raise awareness about marriage equality.Fora list of things to do in your area, go here
