The Human Rights
Campaign has recruited pop star Pink to be the star
of an online public art project that attempts to spur
discussion on coming-out and other LGBT issues.
Debuting a few
weeks before National Coming Out Day on October 11, the
effort is titled "Snapshot Photo Project" and features a
photo of Pink holding up a sign declaring "Talk About
It." The HRC is hoping people will discuss coming-out
issues and other pertinent LGBT topics of the day.
Participants are encouraged to send any photos of
themselves, friends, family, or coworkers to HRC.org/comingout.
"Pink is one of
millions of straight Americans who support fairness
and honesty for everyone--GLBT or straight," said HRC
president Joe Solmonese. "This project will show the
faces of countless Americans who support openness over
painful silence and isolation. Young people who are
afraid to come out will see these pictures and faces and
know that they are not alone." (The Advocate)
