The Give a Damn Campaign is for everybody who cares about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality.
But, it’s especially for all you straight people out there! Whether you’re already an active supporter, want to show your support for the first time, or hadn’t given equality a lot of thought before and now want to learn more, we are here to help you get informed about the issues and get involved, at a pace that works for you.
You’ll find a lot of useful information throughout this site—information that’ll engage you, surprise you and move you. You will also find a bunch of ways to get involved and show your support and encourage your straight peers to show theirs as well.
For all you gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender folks—we need and want you here, too! Because this site is also for you. Not only will you learn new things that might surprise and interest you, you’ll also find a lot of useful tools and resources that will help you encourage the straight people in your life to give a damn.
Like we said, the Give a Damn Campaign is for everyone. Because the only way we can truly achieve equality for all is if we all get informed and get involved. So join us today and let us know you give a damn!
HOW TO USE GIVE A DAMN
There’s a lot to see and do on this site, and you really can’t go wrong starting anywhere… but we suggest you begin by reviewing the damn issues. Then move onto the damn videos and personal stories sections. When you’re done there, jump on over to the damn blog (it’s updated throughout each day). We also urge you to download some damn stuff.
Whatever you read, see or find here that you think is interesting, share it with the people in your life! We have made it easy to do, from using our tell-a-friend feature to being able to post to your social networking pages, like Twitter and Facebook.
But the easiest thing you can do is take 30 seconds to join the campaign. It’ll let us personalize the site for you and keep you updated on the latest news and ways to get involved, through things like our monthly e-newsletter.
The Give a Damn Campaign is the place to stay informed and stay involved about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality. So be sure to visit us often—in fact, bookmark us right now—because we’re going to have new stuff on here all the time.
So go ahead:
Get Informed. Get Involved. Give a Damn!
WHO IS BEHIND GIVE A DAMN?
The Give a Damn Campaign is a project of the True Colors Fund, founded by Cyndi Lauper. The True Colors Fund works to inspire and engage everyone, especially the straight community, to get involved in the advancement of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality.
As an advocate for more than 25 years, Cyndi has worked to bring her straight peers on board in support of equality. As she says, “If one of us is not equal, none of us are.”
Our non-profit partners have been giving a damn for as long as we can remember. For years, they have channeled their hearts, time, effort and considerable talents into ensuring equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans.
We thank all of them for their generosity of time and expertise in helping us put this campaign together. Learn more about the issues, then visit our partner organizations’ websites to get more informed and involved. They really give a damn!
Yes, we give a damn. But our campaign would never have gotten off the ground without the backing of our generous sponsors and supporters. They give a damn right alongside us, and thanks to them, we’re able to help give equality the attention it deserves.
Please visit their websites and support them, just as they have so generously supported us!
