Because many times we overlook our straight allies for LGBT and Human Rights issues. We must realize they are some of the most effective, powerful, and hard line activists for the LGBT & HUMAN RIGHTS MOVEMENT. Not only have they proven that in their past actions, but they have also proven to be extremely invaluable both personally and politically, as well as increasingly important in our fight for LGBT Civil & Human Rights. We must realize that even straight allies have to "come out"; yes, before they support the LGBT, it is a coming out process for them as well when they come out as a straight ally and supporter for Gay & Human Rights and many times are shunned by their own friends, family, and even businesses. THEY DESERVE THIS SPECIAL DAY OF THANKS FOR ALL OF THEIR EFFORTS!
