If you haven’t seen Dustin Lance Black’s Oscar acceptance speech:
I was so touched to hear him say on national television:
“to all of the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told they are less than by their churches, or by the government, or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value. And that no matter what everyone tells you, God does love you…”
The tied white ribbon Black was wearing is part of the White Knot campaign, a way of saying that everyone deserves the right to “tie the knot” and be able to marry the person they love. You can make your own white ribbon knot to wear, or order one from whiteknot.org.
