If you’ve seen the new marriage equality symbols popping up all over Facebook in place of profile photos, you’re probably aware of how marriage equality arguments are shaping up in the United States these days. I know that for some people, gay rights amounts to a question of morality, and can’t or won’t support the cause because they find homosexuality immoral.

I’m on the other side. I’m an ally. I believe that gay rights are the social justice movement of my generation. I’m a member of the GLBTA networking group at work. I don’t believe it’s right that people can be fired for who they love, or that they’re not allowed to marry who they love, if they happen to be gay.

As such, I updated my cover photo on Facebook to this image. If you like it, please feel free to use it.
