A lot of people realize that banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, and we’re here to tell you why. And we’re asking you, on June 1st, to make a video, post, status, tweet, or a good old fashioned letter to spread the word and take a stand.A lot of people realize that banning same-sex marriage, something that is expressly outlined in the Defense of Marriage Act passed by Congress in 1996, is wrong. And a lot of people realize that it’s unconstitutional. But of those outspoken and soft-spoken supporters, not a lot of people are able to tell you exactly why.
That’s what we’re here for.
Starting May 17th, we’re going to start contacting various people and encouraging them to spread the word. We’ve got an ambitious list: John and Hank Green and a good portion of the rest of the Youtube community, actors and actresses like Dianna Agron and Matt Bennett, and prominent authors like Tahereh Mafi and Maureen Johnson - all their names are written on a beat-up scrap of paper, and we want to add yours to the list. So do what you can. Upload a video to Youtube, reblog a post on Tumblr, share this page on Facebook, and make sure to let your voice be heard on June 1st.
We want this to go viral.
Now, we may not change much. We may get only three videos, six responses, or maybe just one lone status. And we may be naive in thinking a few kids can help change the course of history, but maybe that naivety is what we need. Maybe we just need a little optimism. Maybe we just need to put one foot in front of the other, and see where this thing goes.
So let’s try it.
