Personally, I’m interested in calling in gay today, but “Day Without a Gay” organizers are suggesting you wait until tomorrow. The national gay hooky event—-scheduled for International Human Rights Day—-was founded by West Hollywood couple Sean Hetherington and Aaron Hartzler in response to the victory of California’s Proposition 8.

One caveat of calling in gay—-you’re expected to spend your day off work volunteering.
