The White Knot is the symbol for marriage equality. It takes two traditional symbols of marriage—white and tying the knot—and combines them in a simple way to show support for the right of gays and lesbians to marry. All loving couples deserve the same legal rights, benefits, and respect that civil marriage bestows.
Visibility is the goal.Whether you are gay or straight, please show your support by wearing the knot and telling people why you are wearing it. It may seem like a small thing, but imagine the white knot gaining the pervasiveness and instant recognition of the AIDS Ribbon.
Wear your white knot to work, to school, to your place of worship. Celebrities will be wearing white knots down red carpets this awards season. Together, we will keep the topic at the top of people's minds and keep the conversation going.
How to make a White Knot
Start with a 6 inch piece of white ribbon. Widths between 3/4 inch and 1 inch work best.
Tie a double knot in the center of the ribbon. Pulling the first knot tight will line up the ends of the ribbon nicely.
Cut triangles into the ends of the ribbon. This will help prevent fraying.
