The Supreme Court’s oral arguments for same-gender marriage may have concluded, but advocacy for LGBT-rights across social-media platforms continues to go viral. Thousands of users from networks including Facebook, Twitter, Storify, Tumblr and more turned their profiles red—including DiversityInc—and shared dozens of pro-LGBT memes this week in an effort to promote the belief that love knows no restrictions.
“Red symbolizes love. That’s what marriage is all about,” says Charlie Joughin, a spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign, the LGBT-rights advocacy group that started the campaign by turning its equal-sign logo red. The HRC also is offering free equality stickers as a thanks to anyone willing to show their support.
What started as a simple color swap has evolved into massive public promotion, with online users—as true to our meme-hungry society—putting their own spin on the equality symbol.
