“H8SUX” To Fight Homophobia in Schools By Giving Kids FREE ‘OK 4 U 2 Be Gay’ T-shirts – Video

Luke Montgomery, who  the well-known FCKH8 campaign which has raised more than $250K for equality causes wants to fight homophobia and bullying  in schools by giving away free t-shirts to any teen who simply makes a special YouTube video pledge to speak out against homophobia.

Says Montgomery:

We are recruiting kids to the cause of promoting the acceptance of homosexuality in schools. In a world full of bullies, suicide and hate, thousands of school kids wearing a pro-gay message in classrooms can be lifesaving and great. Kids are born gay, lesbian, bi and trans – and when I came out at 15, I was brutally beaten and left unconscious and bloody in a ditch. In 2012, kids should not be bullied and attacked just for being who they are. This free T-shirt will be a pro-gay billboard plastered on the chests of thousands of kids in classrooms across the nation. Our agenda is simple: to tell kids that it’s “OK4U2BGAY.”

For every adults that buys a hoodie, tank top or tee sold on H8SUX.com  the site  will send an “OK4U2BGAY”  tee to a teen for free.
