VOTE 2012

Recently, the Huffington Post published a list of straight celebrities who supported gay marriage. It’s refreshing to see that world of pop culture that people are not afraid to stand up for gay rights. The list of celebs included Brad Pitt, Anne Hathaway, and Sean Penn to name a few. All these people in the world of Hollywood all have a huge voice in society, and they are making their voices heard.

With the upcoming election, it is important to know the views of gay issues, and who actually supports gay rights. I encourage all of you to become acquainted with both candidates views of gay marriage and then decide who to vote for. Pitt had been quoted as saying “gay marriage is going to happen”, because our generation actually understands the importance of marriage. Gay marriage is such an important topic within the LGBT community, and it can become a reality by voting.

So, my friends when November 6, 2012 rolls around make sure to vote. Register now, and find out where your voting location is. Our generation can make change happen for the better. It’s our turn to make our voice heard. Speak up, and stand up for what you truly believe in.
