GLAAD Launches Christmas Card Campaign to Governors in States Without Marriage Equality

Glaad

GLAAD has launched a Christmas card campaign targeting governors in the 34 states without marriage equality and is providing addresses and urging LGBT families and allies to share their holiday photos.

Cooper Smith Koch and Todd Koch, who along with their two children were featured in a 2012 JC Penney Fathers’ Day ad, are featured in a card above, and have joined GLAAD in launching the campaign.

Said Cooper Smith Koch: "It's a lot harder to oppose something when you can see its face and you know its name. That's why we're sending a holiday card to Governor Perry, so that he can see the faces of the citizens of Texas that are being harmed by inequality. And so that he can see the love that we have for our children and how it's the same as the love he has for his."

Anti-Homophobia Rainbow Christmas Light Decoration in Rome Causes Conservative Uproar: VIDEO

A string of rainbow Christmas lights decorated above Rome's main shopping street has left right-wing politicians in the city fuming. AFP reports:

Imma BattagliaCity assemblywoman Imma Battaglia (pictured right) says she and mayor Ignazio Marino had decided to send a message with the multi-coloured lights, which ripple for a kilometre and a half (0.9 miles) of the bustling Via del Corso.

Battaglia, who also leads a gay rights campaign group, said the lights were intended to be against homophobia following the suicide of a gay teenager in the city.

"That is how we came up with the rainbow flag idea," said Battaglia, who is from the leftist Sel party, but added that they could also be seen as a peace symbol.

The decoration, however, did not sit well with conservative politicians in the city, with some in the right-wing Fratelli d'Italia (Italian Brothers) party labeling the idea "provocative" and "ideological." As a result of the controversy, the company behind the installation announced that the rainbow-colored theme would now be dedicated to the late Nelson Mandela so that "the message of love, tolerance, unity and sharing will become stronger."
