Sarah's Support for Equality
In 2013, Sarah founded the Kiss for EqualityTM campaign to raise awareness about the U.S. Supreme Court's hearings on marriage equality. Today, the campaign has more than 50,000 followers, with members from more than forty countries, and helps to raise awareness about the fundamental importance of equality for the LGBTQ community not only in the United States but in the world.
Says Sarah, "We can't all be lawyers, lobbyists, politicians or plaintiffs in the fight for civil rights for the LGBTQ community, but we can still play a part in this historic moment. We can show our support for equality with our humanity. The very act that is often so challenging for same-sex couples is also a potentially powerful show of solidarity." The campaign invites all of us to share a "kiss for equality" with the world, share why equality is important to us, and spread our love for equal rights.
Visit the campaign's official website (www.kissforequality.net) or join the Facebook community.
