Prop 8 protest pics: batch 1

To show their opposition to the recently passed proposition 8, and suport for equal rights regardless of sexual orientation, people gladly painted one thumbnail black/removed their black nail polish from one thumb. There have been many submissions coming from all over, and we're looking forward to many more. Submissions will be posted in random batches of eight pics per post :) Send YOUR pictures to anti_hate@ymail.com to be included in the coming posts!

We're growing!

Hey there, it's your friendly neighborhood mod :) Here to post a couple of announcements and reminders!

1. Please welcome my new co-mod, kananaka! She and I got to talking and planning this morning, with the help of Yahoo! Messenger because she liiives..across the globe from where I live, imagine that! We're currently fixing up an additional forum which we hope'll be up and running soon :) Wait for it! We also tossed a couple of project ideas back and forth. We're really excited -we hope you are, too! :) Feel free to post comments and suggestions :)

2. With regards to the current project, THANK YOU to those who have already submitted! I want to add something to the submissions though, I just thought of it now because of this new software I downloaded. So for future submissions, you have the option of emailing me your country/state and age, as well. It will be edited into your submission, like so:



3. It hasn't happened yet but just in case we get some hateful comments, do not -DO NOT retaliate. We will simply delete the comments ASAP :) We've got to walk our talk y'know?

4. Please continue sending in your pictures and telling others about our cause! All the love is much MUCH appreciated :) anti_hate@ymail.com

Reminders

Hullo everyone. I've already received a couple of submissions (and sent confirmation e-mails so if you didn't get one, check the add you sent it to) and I love them already :) I'm posting to remind you guys to send your pictures to anti_hate@ymail.com :) Click here for the picture guidelines/background story! Submissions will be posted in batches of ten every week (so the first batch will be up next Friday) Also, still looking for great icons, banners and headers so for those of you who are gifted in graphics (don't lie, I know quite a few of you are!) please let me know if you're willing to help :)



one of my favorite submissions, for those who want an example :)


I'd really like us to get to know each other in this community and voice out our own personal advocacy. So let's make this a discussion post as well :) Tell everyone who you are and what kinds of discriminative hatred you are strongly against, and let's figure out new and innovative ways to spread the word.

I'm Lisa and I've got major OCD tendencies, and I hope you guys don't mind having someone like that as a community moderator haha :) I'd love to help put a stop to irrational homophobia, religious intolerance and the kind of Mean Girls drama that makes high school kids want to kill themselves i.e. bullying, teasing people til they develop eating disorders, online hate and gossiping.

Introductions and first project

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for joining/watching/stumbling upon this journal and deciding to read on! So I'm guessing a lot of you are currently on this page because of my posts on kradam_ai and ontd_ai where I asked for opinions on the idea of starting this. I'd like to thank everyone for their encouragement and feedback! :)

So let's get straight to work! First of all, I'd really love some help with the basic layout stuff. If anyone is html-savvy enough to help with a layout PLEASE comment and let me know! :) Also, I'd really love a nice banner for the profile page and icon for posts :) Anything that depicts acceptance, positive changes in the world and all in all a great outlook on life and love would be muuuch appreciated! :)

Now, I'd like to introduce the first photo submission theme. For those of you who know of the epic friendship shared by Kris Allen and Adam Lambert and the ultimate FAIL called prop 8, for this month, we'll be using the former to voice our opinions on the latter! For those of you who aren't familiar with the Kris/Adam nail polish story, here's a link! :) 

Whether you're gay, bisexual or straight but you firmly believe in gay rights, it'd be awesome if you could paint your right thumbnail black (or paint all your other nails black EXCEPT for the right thumbnail) then take a picture and write a short (catchy) statement like "I am pro-gay marriage" You can Photoshop the statement onto your picture like a macro or PostSecret picture, or you can just include it in the e-mail and we'll Photoshop it up for you :)

Send them to anti_hate@ymail.com :)
Please be careful about the e-mail address, guys :) It's @ymail not @yahoo. Will make sure to reply to every e-mail received to confirm it was sent to the right address. If you don't get an e-mail in more than a week, check the address you sent it to :)

I would hope that in society today that people would accept Adam just as much as they would accept me. You know, that's kind of what the world is about: accepting people and loving people. I hope that that's what me and Adam's friendship has shown people, that no matter how different you are, that you can still love people and be friends with them - Kris Allen
