Yeah, we're straight...but we have rainbow flag bumper stickers on our cars anyway! This is a group for heterosexals who are dedicated to supporting the GLBTI community. (But our GLBTI friends are always welcome to join too, of course!)

Is that a rainbow flag on our porch? A pink triangle on our shirt? A pro-gay marriage letter to the Senator on our desk? Why, yes! And a lot of us aren't even homosexual.
That's right - this is a group for straight gay rights activists, their GLBTIQ friends, and "gender indiscriminate" individuals. We believe that love transcends all boundaries, including race, creed, ethnicity, and gender. We'll fiercely defend the GLBTI community in their campaign for rights and social acceptance, even if it means putting ourselves at risk. As people, we just can't sit by and let discrimination against GLBTIQ people reign in any country.
The proposed "Marriage Protection Amendment" is discriminatory and goes against all that the United States Constitution stands for. Through efforts such as donating, signing petitions, volunteering, and even wearing gay pride clothing/accesories, we hope to aid the GLBTIQ community with the struggles they face. We aren't just gay rights advocates - we're vocal ones, most of whom just happen to be straight!
Heterosexuals for Gay Rights, though aimed towards the straight community, is a group where all supporters of the gay rights movement can gather, get acquainted, and have a blast! Together we are strong.
I am really offended by what Dayna Morales did. For those who don't know of her, she is the waitress who posted a receipt on social media, that contained a note stating that her customer would not tip her because they did not agree with her lifestyle. People were understandably outraged and rushed to send her money, compensating her for the lost tip. This would be a really nice story about people uniting to overcome hatred - if it were true. But unfortunately for her, the couple she served saw the story online and recognized the receipt. They were horrified. Why? Because they DID leave her a tip and they DIDNT leave a homophobic note. They produced a receipt for NBC news as well as a credit card statement, showing a generous twenty percent tip. They were upset that Morales was deceiving the community and scamming people out of thousands of dollars. Mostly they were upset that Morales was creating hate where there was none.
In my opinion, her actions set the LGBT movement back quite a bit. Why? Because the next time a hateful act like this occurs, no one will believe it. And that's a sorry state of affairs indeed. Ms Morales, you should be ashamed of what you did. You hurt your own community and for what? Some Internet infamy and unearned money?
HELLO GAY RIGHTS SUPPORT GROUPS ON CARE2..I TRIED TO FIND A PETITION TO SIGN AGAINST THE TEXAS GOP PROPOSAL TO BAN HOMOSEXUALITY AND MAKE IT CRIMINAL BUT I CAN'T FIND ONE ON HERE!

There is a new petition on The Petition Site titled "Separation of Church and State Regarding Marriage". The focus is changing the legal terminology of all branches of all jurisdictions of the United States to eliminate the word "marriage" as a legal term and replace it with "civil union" in all instances, definitions and cases. Since "marriage" is being defined by religious groups, using the term as a legal status effectively allows those groups to control an aspect of the government and deny the (quoting the U S Supreme Court) "basic civil right" to marry to some segments of the population. The full argument is on the site. Please read it and sign if you agree with the reasoning. The more support it has, the better the chance the change can be made.
Luke 6:42 How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
The majority of people are heterosexual. Unfortunately many people in the U.S. think that "majority rule" means the majority has the RIGHT to OPPRESS the minority. If that were the case, and our law makers and courts did not step in, we may still have slavery today and women would still not be allowed to own land or vote.
Like so many that are in the majority, it is easy for them to make new laws and rules that have no affect on them.That is what Heterosexuals are doing when they write legislation or vote on laws governing gay marriage. It doesn't change anything for them. They do not have to change their behavior. They do not have to look at their own moral make up. They just dictate what other people should or shouldn't do.
Consider just the two following facts:
According to the Family Violence Prevention Fund, women are more likely to be killed by their husband or intimate male partner than by a stranger.
According to The Bureau of Justice statistics, children under 5 years of age are more likely to be killed by their own (heterosexual) parents and caregivers than by a stranger.
This is just the tip of an awful and violent iceberg. Heterosexuals, though, point their finger away from themselves and blame the disintegration of their cherished institution on people who do not have and never had any affect on their behavior.
Please consider reading and signing the linked petition so it can be sent to government officials and community leaders and help inspire informed discussion of this hypocrasy.
