True Colors?

Posted by on August 22 at 15:40 PM

I am a big fan of Equal Rights Washington, the statewide gay rights group that formed last year (at a time when I and others were calling for stronger gay rights leadership in this state).

But I am not a fan of their palette:


Fungus green is the color of equality?

Perhaps this green was deemed non-threatening, which seems to be the driving aesthetic for ERW’s web site. (The site is so non-threatening it looks like it belongs to the department of agriculture.) Now, I get the need to be non-threatening, and I’m not calling for a hot-pink logo here, but shouldn’t we gays look a little better while we fight for equal rights in this state?
