Social Outreach Seattle Releases Approve 10 R-74 Ads

Social Outreach Seattle (SOSea) released the first of over 10 Approve
Referendum 74 campaign ads to be released one a day, once a day, from October 1 – 15.

SOSea: Straight Allies
Throughout
the history of minorities securing civil rights, there have been
individuals that are part of the majority who have the foresight to see
progression as something to welcome, and stand up for the
disenfranchised. For the LGBTQ movement, these individuals are
manifested as Straight Allies.
SOSea
encourages ALL Straight Allies to come out in public support of
Marriage Equality and to vote to Approve Referendum 74 in November.

A very special thanks to: State Senator Ed Murray, Michael Shiosaki, State Representative Maureen Walsh, State Representative Jamie Pedersen, Lauren Husband, Daniel Hanks, Donnally Thomas, Dru Dinero, Yee-Shin Huang, Shaun Knittel, Darrell Goodwin-Moultry, Marshan Goodwin-Moultry, and Alvin. 
“The
SOSea video series is an answer to LGBTQ community members who ask,
‘Where are the gay people in gay marriage equality TV spots?,'” said
Social Outreach Seattle Founder and Executive Director Shaun Knittel.
“By reaching out to local leaders in the LGBTQ equality movement,
community members, entertainer, and allies, SOSea has produced over 15
different ads that range from humorous to heartfelt in an effort to
reach voters in all communities.”
Knittel
said, ” SOSea leadership does not believe that by showing the diversity
of the LGBTQ community and our Allies, will turn voters off. Instead,
we believe that by showing our differences (and presenting them in a
forum where most people get
their news and information: Online) voters in and out of the LGBTQ and
Allied communities will hear the message loud and clear that what we are
after is equal right, unequivocally, as who we really are: a wonderful,
vibrant, culture whose right to marry the person they love is up for
popular vote. It should always be popular to vote for love. A vote to
Approve R-74 is a vote to Approve Love.”

The
coalition’s mission is to empower the Seattle LGBTQ and allied
communities to work together to address and ultimately fix social
justice issues in Seattle and beyond. SOSea uses social media, video
production, photo messaging, editorial content and more, to get the
message out that inequality will not be
tolerated.
 
SOSea’s
vision is a community where LGBTQ and allied communities come together
in response to social justice issues they support or condemn, help LGBTQ
and allied businesses, orgs, clubs, and individuals in need of
advocacy, and organize public rallies for visibility.
