Today is a "day of silence" for GLBT right, please pass it on!

[I know! I am late in posting this here is my LJ. It have been up on my myspace page for a while]

What is the Day of Silence?

The Day of Silence is a day in which people of all sexual orientations and gender identities who support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights take a vow of silence to recognize and protest the silence that LGBT people face each day. According to organizers for the Day of Silence Project (contact information at the bottom of this sheet), "the event is designed to raise awareness and protest the silence faced by LGBT people, and offer tools with which to end the silence." The 2006 Day of Silence will be held on April 26th.

I found a few URL's and put two of them here so you can get more info:


You can make cards or slips of paper and put the following on it to give out:

Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights.

People who are silent today believe that laws and attitudes should be inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. The day of silence is to draw attention to those who have been silenced by hatred, oppression, and prejudice. Think about the voices you are not hearing. What can you do to end the silence?

Will be x-posting in a few places
