facebook twitter gay marriage debate pink red equal signs human rights campaign supreme court

Don't adjust your browsers, dear readers — neither Facebook nor Twitter are broken!

You probably woke up to pink and red equal signs taking your social media outlets by storm this morning, but fear not because it's all for a totally awesome cause!!

The US Supreme Court spent Tuesday dragging its feet while listening to arguments for and against gay marriage, but there are millions of people who refused to let their voices go unheard!!

In an effort to bring awareness to the critically important battle to allow all couples who love each other the right to marry, the miracle workers over at the Human Rights Campaign are encouraging EVERYONE — us, you, your crazy uncle who doesn't like kids walking on their lawn — to replace their profile pics with these pink and red equal signs for these next few critical days.

This is pretty much the greatest idea since

Hillary Clinton Publicly Supports Marriage Equality! Watch Her Video For Human Rights Campaign Here!

Just when we think we couldn't love Hillary Clinton anymore, she finds a way to prove us wrong!

The former Secretary of State has never shied away from social issues and was a huge advocate for gender equality before stepping down from office, and now she is also showing support for same-sex marriage!

In a video posted for the Human Rights Campaign, Hillary shares her beliefs on marriage equality saying:

"LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage."

Preach sista!!!

She goes on to explain why the issue is important to her personally, saying:

"A few years ago Bill and I celebrated as our own daughter married the love of her life, and I wish every parent that same joy. To deny the opportunity to any of our daughters and sons solely on the basis of who they are and who they love is to deny them the chance to live up to their own God-given potential."

Can someone get us a tissue over here?!

Ch-ch-check out Hillary's inspiring speech (above)!

Although she is no longer in office, it is always great to see such an influential figure speak out for a great cause! We can't even begin to say how proud we are of Hillary!

Watch Lana Wachowski's Inspiring Speech About Her Transgender Experience

Lana Wachowski, the director of Cloud Atlas, has not made a public appearance to promote her and brother Andy's films in 12 years.

While the filmmaker prefers anonymity, she decided it was finally time to talk about her private struggles that so many others go through too. She got a great opportunity in San Francisco recently when she was honored with the Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award.

The "painfully shy" woman behind The Matrix took advantage of the attention to speak about her transgender experience that started when she was a young child in Catholic School and continues to this day.

Mixing humor and brutal honesty, she takes the audience on a walk in her shoes as she recounts the day she almost committed suicide, the day she came to terms with who she really was, the day her parents accepted her femininity and the day she decided to sacrifice her private civic life to make this world a better place for the entire LGBT community.

Take some time and watch the incredible speech (above). We promise you'll laugh, you'll cry and maybe grow a little bit as a person.

Most of all, you'll be hoping that she makes these types of public appearances more often.

The HRC, Human Rights Campaign, is fighting for LGBT couples to get adoption rights because despite the strides that have been made to allow gay couples to adopt, it's still a huge struggle.

With more than 100,000+ children in youth and foster care, the HRC has created the above video to show you how they're fighting for LGBT couples and how important it is for children to get the chance they deserve - a loving home.
