Show Your Support for the Global LGBT Rights Movement, Donate a Social Post
Equaldex just started a Thunderclap campaign to promote the global LGBT rights movement. To support the campaign, all you need to do is donate a tweet, Tumblr post, or Facebook post.
If the campaign reaches 100 supporters by June 3rd, everyone will post at once at 12pm PDT.
In some countries, coming out as gay can mean losing your friends, in other countries, it can mean losing your life.
Not many people realize that there are over 75 countries where homosexual activity is illegal and in quite a few of those countries, the consequence can be life in prison, or even the death penalty.
In some of the most homophobic countries in the world, people can be killed for just being themselves. In South Africa and several other countries, lesbians have been “corrective raped” in an effort to “turn them heterosexual.”
The LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) movement is a global one and it’s time to think global and show our support to those in need. Let’s urge our governments and people around us to recognize us as who we are; humans.
Equaldex is a new collaborative website aimed at crowdsourcing information about LGBT rights around the globe. Using data contributed by users, Equaldex will shine light on LGBT rights in a visual and compelling way.
