Happy 4th of July everybody! We hope you all have a fun and safe weekend with your friends and family. Make sure to check out your local fireworks! :)

On the day we're celebrating our country's independence and freedom from oppression, it's important that we don't forget that our community is still fighting for ours. The majority of our country is still deciding the rights the minority, which is incredibly ironic when you think about it, given what our Independence Day is supposed to represent. They're refusing to separate church and state in the process, which makes it even worse.

Every American deserves to be equal, no matter what race, beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, or any number of other characteristics. Until state legislation like Prop 8 is repealed and gay and lesbians all over the country are granted federal marriage equality, we're never going to be as "free" as our fellow citizens.

That's why we all have to keep on fighting the good fight, and hopefully someday soon we'll be celebrating our own freedom from oppression!

To celebrate the 4th and help us remember what we're fighting for, we thought we'd share a few of our recent additions to the campaign roster!

American Idol stars Mikalah Gordon and Blake Lewis showed up last week willing to silence themselves for our cause, as well as publicist BJ Coleman, TV Host Dave Holmes, and comedian Erin Foley, and actor Kadeem Hardison.

House of Payne star Denyce Lawton, High School Musical's Oleysa Rulin, Days of Our Lives' Taylor Spreitler and actress Tatyana Ali are just some of our recent actresses joining the campaign.

From the reality spectrum, we have Brooke Knows Best star and choreographer Glenn Douglas Packard with his boyfriend, model Daniel Miagany, Survivor's Sugar, and Big Brother-alum, celebrity stylist Marcellas Reynolds.

Hi Adam, When I saw your photos, I really loved the idea - thought it was great! However, when I showed them to friends, they thought they were stupid and the celebs were doing it for attention. They had no idea what it was really all about and I couldn'

(pt 2). They had no idea what it was really all about and I couldn't tell them how much it hurt my feelings that they didn't understand the message. It saddens me to think that we have so far to go when it comes to realizing that after all of our struggle

(pt 3)... It saddens me to think that we have so far to go when it comes to realizing that after all of our struggles, we're still having a problem making people understand. ~all my best

I'm lovin' the whole concept, seemingly minimal art, yet so profound in its meaning. Clever guy that A. Bouska! Quick comment 2 Louie's comment, just B4 mine: It saddens me that you can't talk to your "friends" about how you feel.
