Day Without A Gay

Are you going to call in gay tomorrow? Wednesday marks the first "Day Without A Gay," a day for gays, lesbians and their supporters to "call in gay" at work and volunteer for gay causes to heighten the straight community's awareness of gay rights (it is also International Human Rights Day). Film producer David Craig says it is about "placing your rights above your pocketbook" but some are critical of the day. The owner of a sex shop in California says that it is a "misguided effort" considering the state of the economy and that similar efforts in the 1970s didn't produce the desired results. What are you going to do tomorrow: gay or nay? [UPI]
