ICYMI: Burger King Proud Whopper

Burger King introduced a new Whopper for San Francisco Pride 2014, with message inside the wrapper states “We are all the same inside”.

Personally, I am impressed by such move by a big chain like Burger King and I believe it does matter a lot. I applaud Burger King for this and I gotta admit too, I have never expected a burger would make me cry. :)

We Are You
from  on vimeo

We believe that our humanity defines us, not who we love, or what gender we are. We believe that the United States has a duty to uphold the words in the Declaration of Independence - “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal…”, but it’s not doing that.

iO Tillett Wright is traveling the country, photographing 10,000 people who identify as ANYWHERE on the LGBTQ spectrum (even 1% gay is enough to get you fired in 29 States). When she has 10,000 portraits, she and her team will take them to the National Mall, in front of the Washington Monument, and stage a march on Washington. This is the SELF EVIDENT TRUTHS Project.

In response to the avalanche of bigotry and misinformation about LGBTQ people, the Self Evident team created the WE ARE YOU campaign - a simple message of love and support. Wear the shirt, put up the sticker, wear the bag, HASHTAG #WEAREYOU, and let it be known that you demand that all humans be treated equally.

Oklahoma’s First Marriage Equality Ad

via Advocate.com

In a new 30-second ad airing throughout Oklahoma, the Lawton-based family expands on the traditional talking point of “family values,” explaining that those fundamental principles should extend to all loving and committed couples in Oklahoma.  

The multigenerational family resides on a 17-acre ranch in the rural town of Lawton, about two hours outside Oklahoma City. Deedra and Amber are lifelong Oklahoma residents who married in Massachusetts and are hoping the state will recognize their relationship and provide equal protection to their family, which includes three young children, notes Freedom to Marry.

In January a federal judge struck down Oklahoma’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage but placed a hold on his ruling pending the state’s appeal. Last month attorneys for the state and two same-sex couples who filed suit argued their case before a three-judge panel of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. A decision in that case is expected later this year.

Remember when Honey Maid released that “wholesome families” ad, featuring same-sex couples, parents with tattoos, biracial couples, and other general awesomeness? Conservatives were pissed. So Honey Maid did them one better and released another video, addressing the hateful and homophobic comments head-on. And now I’m crying. (via the Huffington Post)
