We're average Americans against hatred, or, as we like to call ourselves, the Non-A-Holes.
You may have heard about Walt Disney World's unofficial "Gay Day." Every year, an LGBT cultural group organizes an event for same-sex couples and their families to attend theme parks and other attractions around the country as a community, knowing that they will be accepted for who they are, rather than endure judgment and ridicule from other park-goers.
This year, the misleadingly-named "Florida Family Association" is flying a banner above Orlando, warning "traditional" families that the Gay Day is approaching, so that they can keep their children inside and avoid having to talk to them about such incendiary topics as two men or two women being in love.
Last year, their banner read "Warning: Gay Day at Disney 6/4." They haven't announced this year's banner text, though we can assume it will be equally clever.
Now, the Florida Family Association is clearly a bunch of loonies who can't leave their houses for fear a multi-racial couple might be holding hands at the Stop and Shop, but as ridiculous as they are, this kind of thinking continues to have power. The arc of history bends toward justice and acceptance, but for the time being, those who believe that people aren't people if they don't love someone with the right genitals, are out there, and though they may not win the war, they do win their share of battles.
So let's show them that this one isn't theirs. Let's fly a banner above Orlando that reads "WARNING: Homophobes Loose in Orlando. Hide Your Kids." We need about $1,200 to run the banner for two hours above Orlando. Please join us, the Non A-Holes by clicking the donate link on this page and letting the Florida Family Association know that haters can be haters, but, to quote The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, "Love is never wrong, and so it never dies."
