As much as many of you may be absolutely addicted to that cup-o-joe in the mornings, on April 15, I would strongly advise you not to take your kids in or near a Starbucks. Otherwise you might be stuck explaining a few things that you probably believe they are not yet ready to be confronted with.
Because I refuse to give the group doing this exercise any traffic I'll simply show you what's on the page:
Show up at a Starbucks on Tax Day at 7:15 AM, 12:15 PM, 5:15 PM, or 8:15 PM , buy a cuppa joe, then share a kiss with your sweetie, or a friend, or even a long-time crush! RAWR!
LGBT couples have yet to be granted the same rights to file our taxes jointly on a Federal level, and we can still be fired for being openly gay in the workplace. That's why you're encouraged to be seen on Tax Day, April 15, 2009, spreading your love with a KISS!
Don't have someone to kiss? Then check our facebook page, click on "Confirmed attendees" and find someone cute in your town.
But I'm not out! I'm scared of being shamed and outcast by my community!
Now's the time, Gays. And we've made it as safe and silly for you as possible by choosing the most gay-friendly,corporate spot in the world. Starbucks! Starbucks has been committed to LGBT rights since the beginning of time offering domestic partnership insurance, quoting gay artists on their coffee cups and funding our pride parades.
I'm not gay, but I like kissing.
Perfect. Straight allies, never fear! Come support your committment to equality and public displays of affection, and smile at your neighbor to let them know its 2009 and that you're happy we're able to live our lives. It means a lot to us when you tell us, especially when you're our friends and family.
I'm just not comfortable kissing in public.
Fine. Consider April 15th "Homo Hug-in."
C'mon. Is kissing REALLY going to solve our problems?
People who vote against gays do so because they don't know us and they're not used to us. But that's changing as we live our lives openly like they do. Once they see that we're just like them, and unafraid, they come around. Didn't you see the Oscars? C'mon! One small kiss for us, one giant leap for equality!
Ok, I'm in. Tongue or no tongue?
Welcome to America. Be creative.
Media inquiries or local mass organization questions?

The local and national news want's to see your kiss. So make sure to send pictures of it to us anytime, with your name, location and a phone number we can reach you at.
Note that the organizers tie this effort directly to Prop 8 and President Obama. Note also that President Obama lied to the American public by saying he supported marriage, but has supported all measures necessary to overturn the constitutionally established Prop 8...
I'm just sayin...
