National Marriage Equality Day | August 7

National Marriage Equality Day | August 7

Today's focus was started online as a response to last wed's Chick-Fil-A Day of Support. We encourage you to patron one of the companies that have come out in support of LGBT Equality!

In an effort to heighten awareness for all companies and nonprofits contributing to the fight for marriage equality, it was decided to rename August 7 as National Marriage Equality Day. (Today was originally going to be Starbucks Appreciation Day, but was expanded to include more LGBT friendly businesses and corporations)

A partial list of national and international brands that support LGBT rights is below:

Your $$$ is powerful... so visit one of these places today, drop a few dollars and tell them you are supporting them because they are supporting you!

If you would like to submit a note or a photo of you or your freinds taking part in today's event, please email us at info@gaycentralvalley.org
