Last night, I decided to not get married…
at least, not until every American citizen has that right.

The National Marriage Boycott is a student driven movement to urge Congress and President Obama to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). If you believe that same-sex couples deserve to be as valued in society as heterosexual couples, you might be interested in participating in the boycott. Particpants sign an online pledge, and you can purchase an equality ring for $10 (plus shipping, if necessary) to symbolize your commitment to true equality. All profits are used to help further the fight for LGBTQ rights.

I chose to sign the pledge because I believe a commitment to equality is more important than the legal recognition I could have access to in a heterosexual relationship. My identity as a member of the LGBTQ community comes first, regardless of the gender of my partner. I recognize that marriage is a privilege, not a right—and I’m proud to be part of the fight to change that.
