Help Aruba vote for love

In the Caribbean, living as an openly gay person can be incredibly tough. In places like Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, many local LGBT Caribbeans have to live in fear every single day.

But a small island in the Caribbean is about to break that trend in a HUGE way.

This Monday, Aruba will vote on civil unions for same-sex couples. The bill was introduced by Desiree de Sousa - Croes, an openly gay Senator who married her same sex partner in the Netherlands.
But religious leaders like Daniel Szpila, a Polish Catholic Priest, are running a vicious, counter-campaign, combating messages of love and equality by inciting violence and fear-mongering. Szpila said children of gay parents are destined to be handicapped, mentally disturbed, and emotionally deprived, among many other attacks.

We need to stop them from spreading their hate. Thousands of signatures from around the world will convince decision-makers that voting for love and equality in Aruba is the right thing to do.

Will you tell the Aruban parliament to open civil unions to same-sex couples?
