Gay Marriage Is Only The Start

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Despite recent rulings lifting the ban on gay marriage, the fight for gay rights is far from finished.

Today (Jun. 5), gay rights organizations Project From the Heart and The Wedding Party are seeking worldwide support with their “One Billion Clicks for Love” campaign.

From now until 2009, they’re urging one billion people to click on the virtual “Wall of Love” on to raise awareness for gay rights.

Walking down the aisle is only the beginning for the “One Billion Clicks” producer Mykel Dicus.

Dicus says, “We’re making political gains, but socially, we’re so far behind. In New York, the most diverse city, people still get called fagg■t and dy■e.”

While Dicus welcomes celebrity support from Ellen DeGeneres or Neil Patrick Harris, the clicking campaign isn’t for Hollywood, but for regular people looking for love.

Dicus says, “If Joe and Bob in Oklahoma catch word about the campaign, they won’t have to feel isolated or live in fear.”
