So technically this is a white knot and not a white ribbon. Whatever it is, it's something to wear proudly. Another organization that has popped up post Prop. 8 is The White Knot. It's just a guy who came up with the idea of the white ribbon knot that people can wear, and the Oscar was the latest big event that showcased them. (Like it was so hard to get Hollywood to wear another ribbon.)
Just like the original red ribbon brought awareness about AIDS, lets hope this white knot gains as much recognition and doesn't get lost in the rainbow of ribbons out there. Just click on the organization's Web site to get one or you could actually get a ribbon, tie a knot and wear it. I'm sure that'll work too.
Pictured, of course, is Dustin Lance Black, winner of Best Original Screenplay at this year's Oscars for the film, "Milk."
