Sex columnist and gay rights advocate Dan Savage has launched a blog called Straight Up Thanks, honoring straight men, women and children who helped "win marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, and Washington state, and who helped us defeat an anti-gay marriage amendment in Minnesota." The blog invites members of the LGBT community to publicly thank their straight friends who "worked phone banks, knocked on doors, spoke out, gave money" by submitting pictures of them to the site.

Those who didn't support marriage equality can watch this instead.
