A Day Without a Gay – “Call in Gay” – December 10th
When: Wednesday, December 10th, all day
More information: firstname.lastname@example.org
On December 10th (there has been some dispute about the date, it IS Wednesday, December 10th) supporters of the LGBTQ community are going on strike for one day to protest the passing of Proposition 8 and the removal of civil rights from the California Constitution of the LGBTQ community.
24 hours without our money, one day with no shopping (I know, I know… this will be HARD). But the good part is that you can “Call in Gay.” Just say “I feel a little queer today, and I won’t be in.”
I’m pulling most of my information about events from other sites with no personal commentary. But I’d like to interject is a personal plea/request. Stay out of the bars too. I know they’re owned by our gay friends, and our friends serve our drinks and rely on our tips to pay their bills. It’s a tough call and I’m sorry. I don’t want to hurt them. But this action HAS TO HURT. The nation’s economy has to feel this, or we did it for nothing.
I’m taking it one step further, I’m requesting not to be paid for that day. I don’t want any tax money I would have paid to go to the government. I’m a nut job, I know.
