White Knot - Ribbon Campaign for Marriage Equality

The white knot ribbon campaign in support of marriage eqauality is becoming enormously popular. Several Hollywood celebrities have also been spotted wearing the white knot in support. The campaign aims to make the white ribbon a symbol for the marriage equality movement.

How to make a White Knot

1. Start with a 6 inch piece of white ribbon. Widths between 3/4 inch and 1 inch work best.
2. Tie a double knot in the center of the ribbon. Pulling the first knot tight will line up the ends of the ribbon nicely.
3. Cut triangles into the ends of the ribbon. This will help prevent fraying.
4. Pin it on and you're good to go.

For more information, to host a ribbon making party, get badges and fliers check out the White Knot website.

Great idea about the white ribbon! I also wanted to take the time to make a suggestion that we bring our plight to a variety of forums, discussion boards and social networks in the internet. There is a forum at http://www.city-data.com/forum where I've been posting as SurfOmaha. You can find your city or state and post your opinion on a thread or better yet start your own thread about a gay. I mostly post in the Nebraska and Omaha threads, but there is also a thread called Politcs and Controversies where I post at too. Lots and lots of haters on these forums. We practice our beliefs and the good fight by posting on these types of forums before we take it out to the streets again!

Great suggestion, although I think sometimes the least persuadable people are out on discussion boards (they can hurl their insults and hide behind their screen names.) I post out at Topix under the name engaged voter.
I'll look you up!

hey, that's really cool :)

but that is only for marriage equality, right?
what about just gay equality in everything? is the ribbon color yellow?

Angel, you're stupid. Not even going to try and sugar-coat that.
First off, READ. The ribbon is WHITE. Not yellow. It clearly states that.
Secondly, MARRIAGE EQUALITY = For LGBT persons, obviously.
Since heterosexuals already have that right.

No wonder I hate half of you in the community, you're idiotic.

Anonymous,

You're the idiot, did you even READ angel's comment?

Anonymous said...

Yeah honestly anonymous that was kinda rude. You say you hate everyone but maybe thats because you don't listen to them. It was an honest question from someone who probably wanted to get involved and support gay rights.
To answer your question Angel, i'm not positive but i think its just white for everything.
