The Supreme Court decision on June 26, 2015 didn’t make LGBT people equal.
Sure, it was a giant step forward, but the fight must continue and the simple fact remains: LGBT people can still be discriminated against simply because of their sexuality.
Equality Vodka has been at the forefront of the movement for full equality, sponsoring numerous LGBT fundraisers and boozing us up with delicious spirits. But more importantly, Equality Vodka is getting their product onto menus at bars and restaurants because visibility is half then battle. The more people who drink the vodka and discover the mission behind it, the better.One of their most successful campaigns, Equality Is Black And White, takes a page from the NoH8 campaign and gathers people together for a photo shoot. This effort gives participants individual head shots with messages that show that we’re all more than just our sexuality.
“I am Gay” may be crossed out and replaced with “I am a Writer.” Or “I am a Teacher.” Or “I am a Sharpie Salesman and I Wish Celebrities Still Signed Autographs.”
Simply purchase a ticket and select a time slot this Saturday at Sue Ellen’s to have your photo taken. Then put a lint roller to your favorite black crew neck t-shirt or crew neck sweater so all photos have a uniform look and style. They’ll shoot five to 10 pics during your moment in the spotlight and their team will select the best one for retouching.
Space is limited, so book today.
Perhaps one day, equality will indeed be a black-and-white issue: Either we’re all truly equal or the word loses all meaning.
We’ll drink to that.
