We are thinking about love.

We are thinking about a world where we can love who we love and be who we are shamelessly and unapologetically. We are thinking about what it means to live and love freely recognizing that so many of us have to fight hard to capture even a glimpse of freedom.

On a day devoted to celebrating the most narrow definition of romantic love – where the most generic tokens of affection spill out of every corner store and flower shop – we want you to helps us celebrate love differently. We want you to help us envision different kinds of love.

We want you to help us teach love.
