National Day of Silence is tomorrow in honor of LGBT students who remain silent about their sexuality out of fear of bullying. While you are silent tomorrow reflect on what you can do to “break the silence” in the future and help make it so people don’t have to be silent about who they are.

'All Love Is Equal' project shows what true love looks like around the world

While the candy hearts and stuffed teddy bears have likely already fallen victim to the inevitable post-Valentine’s Day purge, this stunning photo series by photographer Braden Summers reminds us of the power true love still holds in our imagination.

Summers’ “All Love is Equal” project depicts same-sex romances around the world, from Lebanon to the U.S. An artist inspired by the beauty around him, Summers told PolicyMic he was inspired to create the series after noticing the lack of same-sex representation in most romantic imagery.

See the full list and where each couple is from

This 7th Grader’s Gay Marriage Animation Is Sweet, Topical And A Sign Of Things To Come

A seventh grade teacher has made public a stop-motion animation to support same-sex marriage, produced by one of her young students. 

13 year-old Scarlett Dennis’ 50 second Activism Project follows Larry and Gerald as they meet and fall in love, but are soon accosted by the homophobic views of local residents. Five years later, one of the men asks the other to marry him, to which bystanders again object - but the proposal is joyfully accepted despite the prejudice around them. 

Poignantly, the clip then poses the question: “Why is it in this country that a heterosexual couple who have just met can get married… But a homosexual couple who have been in love for years cannot?”

If ideas like this are coming out of the 7th grade, the future for LGBT Americans is undoubtedly moving in the right direction. Things do indeed get better.
