North American Bear Weekend Selects NOH8 As Charity

LEXINGTON, Ky. – North American Bear Weekend has chosen the NOH8 Campaign as the 2013 selected charity. The NOH8 Campaign is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest.

On Friday, December 7th – the Supreme Court announced they would hear an appeal that ruled Proposition 8 as unconstitutional. With the rights of many same-sex couples on the line, this decision ensures the opportunity to fight for the freedom to marry on a federal level. These developments and the impact they will have on the future of equal rights could be huge. The Supreme Court’s decisions have added to the momentum for marriage equality seen this past election, and we’re anxious and excited to see what else the future may bring. The stage is set, and the Supreme Court’s decision guarantees that federal marriage equality will have its day in court! The North American Bear Weekend is very excited to be sponsoring this very important movement!
