Same Love, Same Rights

Denise Mestanza- TaylorThe day after I wore purple to support epilepsy, I changed my Facebook to the color red to show my support for gay rights.

To some, changing my photo to a small red equal symbol seemed like a foolish way to make a statement.  It’s never foolish to take a stand for what you believe in.  With each red equal sign, each individual becomes another red square in a large quilt that blankets this country with a need for acceptance and change.

wrong side of history

I have so many gay and lesbian friends and they deserve the same civil liberties and rights as my husband and me.


If my children are gay, I don’t want them to live through the pain that my gay brothers and sisters have endured.  My friends and loved ones deserve the same love, the same rights as everyone else.

For Music Mondays, I’m now teaming up with my good friend and fellow Marathon Mama, Chrissy.

    I didn’t change my picture (because I’m not sure if I remember how) but I agree with you. I have lots of friends (and some family) that I support 100%. I’m not sure why people feel the need to get so wrapped up in other’s business anyway – a person’s choice of a partner really doesn’t affect others!
