Thanksgiving Texas-Style

Thursday, November 25th, 2010




Thanksgiving is a day above all other days to focus on the positive and be thankful for what you have and the progress you've made. It's a day for all of us to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and be thankful to have what we do. Politics and work are trumped by love and togetherness, and we can only hope we can use Thanksgiving as a model for how we should treat each day.

This year, we at the NOH8 Campaign are incredibly humbled and thankful for each and every one of you out there who has shown us support. Whether you've come out to a photo shoot, shared our message with your friends and family, or simply followed us on Twitter- that support speaks volumes to us. We've received messages of thanks and hope from - literally - all over the world, and all of you inspire us to continue to do what we do in raising awareness and acceptance for equal rights and treatment for everyone.



A few months back, a gentleman by the name of Lowell Kane reached out to us on behalf of the GLBT Resource Center at Texas A&M University. He asked us how it might be possible to bring NOH8 to their campus and send the message that Hate is NOT an Aggie Value. Just a few months later, Team NOH8 was boarding a flight to College Station, Texas to set-up our campaign for a day on the campus of Texas A&M.



College Station's LGBT community was so happy to have us there, and we were truly touched by how thankful they were to us for bringing the campaign to their town. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to travel to cities like College Station where we can really make a difference, and that's why we want to share some of the incredible photos from the Texas A&M shoot with you today.

Happy Thanksgiving again, and be safe!
