Wordless Wednesday: Human Rights Campaign Goes Viral

Pink Red Equal Sign

Pink/Red Equals Sign

Today my Wordless Wednesday will be brief, but not wordless. It’s for a cause I believe in, in the name of what’s right, what’s just and what’s fair.

It’s a question of humanity, that every human being deserves equal treatment under the law.

The purpose of the pink and red photo, that has gone viral on Facebook and Twitter, is best explained by yesterday’s Time Newsfeed: “..the Human Rights Campaign, which advocates equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, has been promoting an image of a pink equal sign over a red background in lieu of its blue-and-yellow logo to mobilize supporters online as the Supreme Court begins hearings on gay marriage today in Washington. A symbol of equality, the photo has racked up more than 25,000 likes and 78,000 shares on the group’s Facebook page in the past 24 hours. In fact, Mashable reports that since actor George Takei changed his profile picture to the red equal sign, the post has received more than 40,000 likes from fans.”
