What’s with the equal signs on Facebook & Twitter? Statement on Marriage Equality.

purple equality

In the next couple of days, the US Supreme will come to a decision regarding two cases on Marriage Equality, and decide in principal the right for same-sex couples to marry.

In response to this, the Human Rights Campaign is asking people to change their profile picture to one of two red or purple equal signs.

I would urge as many of you as possible to do the same. I believe marriage should be between every couple who shares an undying bond of love. Two men or two women should be able to enjoy the same commitment and share in the same celebrations as heterosexual couples. Love does not have a gender.

As part of my commitment to improving teenage mental health, I am pledging my support toequality for all. Join me and the Human Rights Campaign by changing you picture. It really does make a difference. As one judge said “I was voting no until I saw all the red signs on Facebook…”

Thanks,
Ryan Cairns MYP
