rings2.jpgRemember when supporters of LGBT equality flipped the homophobic Twitter hashtag #SignsYoSonIsGay, or commandeered Olympics sponsor McDonalds's #CheersToSochi hashtag in January to draw attention to the persecution of LGBT people in Russia?

Well, we're doing it again -- and we need your help.

Today is the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court taking up marriage equality for the first time -- 365 days ago this morning, the Justices were hearing oral arguments in the Proposition 8 case -- so of course, the anti-LGBT National Organization for Marriage decided to commemorate the day by evangelizing marriage discrimination on Twitter.

They've asked their supporters to take to the social media site and tweet about why same-sex couples and families should be excluded from marriage, under the hashtag #Marching4Marriage.

So naturally, equality supporters are flipping the hashtag by issuing our own #Marching4Marriage tweets, turning a message of division and discrimination into one of inclusiveness and love. Check out some of the tweets below, then hop on Twitter to add your own!
