EQrings is a fund raising venture that I stumbled across a couple of days ago that is trying to raise as much money as they can to fight inequality and have gay marriage legalised once more in California after the disastrous introduction of Proposition 8.

People might think that there’s no point helping California with this fight if they live on the other side of the world, but this fight is one that needs to happen with the backing of the global community so that we can, piece by piece, fight the fight everywhere. The rings come in either pewter or sterling silver and have the simple inscription of “equality” on them. I’ll be ordering one.

“The Equality Ring is more than a simple statement of love, respect and dignity. It is a conversation starter and a signal of solidarity. It is a reminder of our goals yet unaccomplished and an admonition to carry on.”
