The new way to fight Prop 8; calling in gay. What is calling in gay, you may ask? A few years ago I was having a conversation with a gay friend about his frustration with homosexuality being branded as an illness.
His argument was this; "If being gay means that I am sick, does that mean I can call gay?" Little did he know that he was on to something.
This version of calling in gay belongs to Sean Hetherington and his boyfriend, Aaron Hartzler. They envisioned "A Day Without a Gay" to demonstrate to employers the importance of homosexuals under their employ. The movement encourages gays to call in sick to work and then volunteer their time to a charitable cause, instead of sitting at home watching soaps.
So go ahead America, call in gay!
