Yesterday an American Apparel store in Silver Spring, Maryland had a window broken by someone upset over the company’s support for gay marriage. Our Georgetown location and others in the areas have received similar threats. We just wanted to use this forum here to announce that not only are they not going to prevent us from speaking out on an issue that is important to this company and our employees but we’ll continue to run Legalize Gay advertisements in papers across DC-Metro area. We’ll also send Legalize Gay t-shirts to any group in Washington DC that is fighting for gay rights and will help support any protest or rally for the cause.
We don’t find this kind of thing funny and we definitely don’t find it intimidating. Thanks to everyone who has reached out to us and if you need anything please contact: Jonny at firstname.lastname@example.org or (213) 488-0226
Thank you American Apparel for not only refusing to back down to these low and cowardly anti-LGBT advocates, but also stepping up support for marriage equality in the face of such violent actions.
