Straight Up Thanks - A Place To Thank Our Straight Allies For All They Did (And Are Doing) For Our Queer Equality

Straight Up Thanks is very cool.  The premise?


We are LGBT people who want to thank the straight people who helped us win marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, and Washington state, and who helped us defeat an anti-gay marriage amendment in Minnesota.

If you're a queer person whose straight friends worked hard to win marriage equality—worked phone banks, knocked on doors, spoke out, gave money—send us a photo and a couple of sentences about what your straight friends did...

If you're a straight person who worked for marriage equality… THANK YOU!

The photos and stories are great and inspiring... and addictive!

Here are just a couple more.

Go check it out, and thank some straight allies you know!

And thanks to Dan Savage for creating another great online engine of change and gratitude.

Those of us who are allies know that bigotry isn't right, it isn't fair, and it makes a miserable world for everyone. Plain and simple.
