    Very nice! The best sign I heard about was one that said, " gay people should have the right to be just as miserable as I make my husband." I must remember to mention it to the LH.

    I have a question: do you know what is the significance of the pink-on-red version of the HRC equality symbol (which is ordinarily yellow-on-blue)? It seems to be spreading on FB like a virus.

      There was an image that got passed around yesterday, though, that had Atlanta saturated to dark red, and it said, "Let's paint the town red, Atlanta! Show your support for marriage equality!"

      As for red in particular, I don't know.  Perhaps because of the association with romantic love?

      And oh yeah, it's viral.

      I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one opening friends' Friend list pages and scanning down for that icon. Found out a lot of people I hadn't wanted to reconnect with because We Grew Up In Conservative Country have actually had paths similar to mine... and are sporting the icon at the moment.

      Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.

        my FB page was full of friends with no other ID!

        It wasn't immediately obvious if you don't spend much time there (I don't) - a gay friend and I were equally puzzled yesterday.
