Straights Only is a play on the Whites Only signs of segregated America. I wanted to highlight the parallels of the civil rights movements of yesterday to the civil rights movement of today to help people realize that all civil rights movements are about one thing: EQUALITY.
My boyfriend and I are separated because of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). This is our protest. We will not be kept apart.
love your response to that last question and love everything about your movement, your stickers are very effective and i think it helps people realize the severity of the issues at hand, i might not fully understand what you go through on a daily basis being a straight male, but please know that doesnt stop me from fully supporting the equality everyone in america deserves, keep fighting the good fight.
hey everyone, just wanted to post a short thank you to all of my followers. my inbox has been overwhelmed by fans & supporters of Straights Only. It makes us so happy to know that we’re not alone in this fight. it’s also very reassuring to know that you can all see so clearly how shock value & street art can raise awareness and open up minds.
hey man, i'm not trying to make you look bad or anything like that but in the "straights only" campaign that you are doing, why are you doing it? i mean i get it, its like the whites only towards african americans, but it's not like if african americans posted those signs to show how bad they were being treated. why are you posted those signs if they are not posted by people who are homophobic? if the problem isn't there why make it? as long as they don't physically hurt you you shouldnt care
As long as they don’t physically hurt us then I shouldn’t care? Gays & lesbians are being physically/mentally hurt/abused every day in America and across the world. And of course African Americans didn’t hang up Whites Only signs, but you’re missing the point that I am trying to make. I am showing the parallels of the civil rights movements of yesterday to the civil rights movement of today to help people realize that all civil rights movements are about one thing: EQUALITY. If you can’t see that there is a problem… I think Straights Only might be beyond your grasp.
And on a personal note, my boyfriend and I are being hurt every day by homophobic laws that keep us from being together. We are a bi-national couple who have been together for over 5 years and are being kept apart at the moment by the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) along with thousands of other bi-national couples. You don’t think it physically hurts to be kept away from the person you love and want to spend the rest of your life with?!?! Wake up and join in the fight.
