There?s many different ways to go about supporting gay rights. Unfortunately upon doing a web search for different things, I was disappointed to see there aren?t many resources. But that?s ok. That?s what this group is for. While researching I found a list on About.com that states 10 ways to support gay rights and I think it's a good start: 1) Register To Vote! The best way to tell our government how you feel is to vote! Be sure to update your address if you are registered to vote or sign up if you are not. 2) Sign a Petition for Same-Sex Marriage Your single signature may at first seem irrelevant, but among millions change happens. If you'd like to sign a petition, do a Google search for a support gay marriage petition in your state. Also, another great place to sign is for Human Rights Campaign, Million for Marriage Petition. Click on the image below to learn more about Million for Marriage, you can also sign the petition itself there!



3) Write Your State Senator or Representative Your State Senators and Representatives were elected by you and act on your behalf. Let them know how you feel. Don?t know how to find them to contact them? NO PROBLEM, Support Gay Rights Staff made it easy! 4) Contact the White House The Bush Administration opposes equal gay rights. Send letters supporting gay equality directly to our leader. Let's keep the upper hand by expressing our opinions with respect and professionalism. To contact The White House: Mailing Address The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20500 Phone Numbers Comments: 202-456-1111 Switchboard: 202-456-1414 FAX: 202-456-2461 TTY/TDD Comments: 202-456-6213 Visitors Office: 202-456-2121 5) Support Gay Schools Help alleviate queer youth from the perils of harassment and violence by contacting your local Department of Education or by providing funding to The Harvey Milk School. The Harvey Milk School is a NYC based High School, but you are more than welcome to donate, to do so, click on the image below, if not, check around and see if there's a school like this in your area, if not write your state senate and ask if its possible to create a gay school to help out the GLBT Youth.



6) Write the Church A simple email to gay-friendly churches can go a long way towards the confirmation of gay clergymen. Don't know where there is a gay-friendly church in your area? Its ok, we got you covered, that?s what we're here for!



7) Support the Service members Legal Defense Fund The SLDF needs your support as the leading advocate for gays in the military. Not only do they educate service members on the current "don't ask, don't tell" policies, but they provide free legal advice. The SLDF, a.k.a Sri Lanka Democracy Forum, is a global network of activists committed to promote democratization and inter-ethnic co-existence in Sri Lanka. Presently there are people connected to the network in 11 different countries. 8) Watch Gay Television Shows Despite what your parents said, watching television is good for you- especially if you're gay! By watching gay-theme television shows you increase their ratings. Increased ratings make the high-power networks and advertisers very happy. Hopefully, happy enough that they can't afford not to have gay programming. Showing Americans gay life on television may also lessen the fear of gay equality. There are some shows that are family oriented, some that aren't, so depending on your age, keep an eye on what you watch. 9) Volunteer for a Gay Rights Organization There are several organizations that help promote gay rights and safety. Find the one that best suits your lifestyle. This group is a great way to start supporting, but there are so many things you can do whether you want to be semi-active or extremely active. 10) Lobby for Gay Adoption The American Bar Association had recently agreed to endorse and lobby states for equal adoption rights for same-sex couples. Join the fight! I hope these things help you guys, but I'm 100% positive we can all add to this list. Anyone else have any ways? What about anything to add on to the above list? Maybe you know better links that I found?
