If you were on Facebook or Twitter tonight, did you notice a red square with a pink equal sign popping up everywhere?
The Human Rights Campaign changed its logo from a blue and yellow square to a red and pink one in support of gay marriage. Now celebrities, activists and politicians — including Governor Martin O’Malley — have changed their Facebook profile picture to the new symbol to show same sex marriage support.
“Red is a symbol for love, and that’s what marriage is all about,” Human Rights Campaign spokesperson Charlie Joughin told MSNBC.com on Tuesday. “We wanted to give people an opportunity to show their support for marriage equality in a public and visible way.”
