Today, December 10, is National Day Without A Gay, where those in support of same-sex marriage are encouraged to "call in gay" and skip work to prove the value of the community. The event, which coincides with International Human Rights Day, encourages participants to then volunteer or give back to the community. Its goal is to show the impact of the LGBT community and its supporters, and rally against the passing of California's Proposition 8.

Organizations including Out & Equal Workplace Advocates and Join the Impact have thrown their support behind the cause. Blogs discussing the effort include Gawker, Change.org, AfterEllen, and former Project Runway contestant Jack Mackenroth.

Mainstream media like The New York Times and other papers have been covering the event. Organizers are also using Twitter and Facebook to spread the word.
