We have the pink ribbon, the red ribbon and the yellow one tied around that old oak tree. But now, there’s the White Knot. If you haven’t heard of the White Knot, don’t worry, it is fairly new.
The White Knot was started just after the passage of Proposition 8 in California, banning gay marriage by Frank Voci. He created the symbol, which represents the fact that everyone should have the right to tie the knot. Ever since its creation, the knot has appeared on awards broadcasts, at rallies, parades and on hundreds of celebrities who support us.
Now, Affinia Hotels in New York, Chicago and Washington, DC are offering specially priced pride packages, which include:
- Delicious breakfast for two each morning (just please don’t eat in bed, that really grosses us out)
- Cocktails for two each evening (oh yeah, that’s what we like!)
- Your very own White Knot to show your support for equality
- A fabulous Affinia room, which you can customize at My Affinia with such great things as hypoallergenic or luxe down pillows, a rubber duckie, cupcakes or a fitness kit to work off all those cupcakes.
Rates start at just $184/night depending on the hotel/city, and $10 of each package goes to WhiteKnot.org. Simply use code PRIDE when you reserve your room and you’re all set to show your pride, support marriage equality and get a good night’s sleep. That’s a good combo!
