A lot has happened since I first posted about the incident which precipitated an avalanche of support for these two brave and compassionate men, who have taken it upon themselves to lead the vanguard against hate and homophobia. They have created a Twitter account, @toleranceinc, a Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/toleranceinc?ref=br_tf, and now, a fan-back webpage to help fund one of their ultimate goals; take Cat on a Hot Tin Roof to off-Broadway and keep spreading the message of love and tolerance, love is genderless, love is non-exclusive. The reports of the incident, if you haven’t already read about it, after which John Lacy was fired and Anton Troy quit the play in support of his colleague are contained in my previous blog post.
I ask anyone who has ever felt disenfranchised, looked down on and shamed by society for simply being who they are, who want to support their friends and relatives, to follow Tolerance Inc. on Twitter and Facebook, and then visit the web page which was unveiled this morning, http://www.fanbacked.com/c/message-tolerance-and-love-all/
As with any campaign like this, you can receive some very cool items for your donation or just donate because you want this message to be heard, and heard it will be in New York City. Things have to change and when presented through the Arts, it will.
THANK YOU for checking all of this out. There are many interviews, photos, and commentary posted at Facebook at Twitter so you can get up to speed!
