Author, journalist and “It Gets Better” campaign founder Dan Savage has released a new initiative this week meant to draw attention to straight allies that have helped progress the LGBT equality movement in recent victories in Washington state, Minnesota, Maryland and Maine.
The new website, called Straight Up Thanks, highlights photos and stories of straight allies submitted by gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender friends and family.
From the site's description:
In the last several years, Savage has become a central figure in the ongoing fight for equality. The “It Gets Better” campaign was created in the wake of a series of suicides by youth who were bullied for their sexuality. Savage and eventually hundreds of celebrities, public figures and even politicians joined in offering their words of encouragement to at-risk youth.
