Today’s a pretty big day for queer rights, seeing as marriage equality is going down in the Supreme Court. However I was pretty disheartened by the HRC’s ‘go red’ campaign on Facebook. Why, I thought to myself, couldn’t they use this amazing influence they have to start an internet movement that would actually help those of us still struggling for basic rights? Such as the right to be legally recognized as a person. To at least have our basic existence validated.
Changing your profile pic to a red HRC flag takes about just as much effort as signing this petition, but the difference between the two is this petition could actually have an enormous and meaningful impact on the lives of non-binary people. We need to reach 100,000 signatures in order to get a response from the White House and it only takes a few seconds to sign and reblog! And all you need to sign is an email.
So please, in celebration of marriage equality, and in support of all queer people, sign and spread this petition! We still need 75,000 signatures and have less than a week. Please, please do all you can to spread this. As a non-binary person, this would mean the world to me, and to many others. We can’t do it without you. Thank you!
