Seven Straight Nights for Equal Rights

Inlaws & Outlaws teamed up with Atticus Circle & Soulforce to bring the movie to Seven Straight Nights for Equal Rights vigils throughout the country.

During October 7-13, 2007, straight people across the nation "came out" as supporters of equal rights for gay and lesbian Americans.

From Santa Rosa, California, to Montgomery, Alabama, to Augusta, Maine, overnight vigils lit up American cities, providing unprecedented visibility to heterosexual men and women with the conviction to stand up for their gay and lesbian friends and neighbors.

This grassroots groundswell, dubbed Seven Straight Nights for Equal Rights, was initiated by Soulforce and Atticus Circle, two Texas-based organizations with members across the nation. With their support, straight community leaders organized vigils in towns across America.

These courageous community leaders showed their elected officials that equality is not a gay issue, not an urban elite issue, not an east coast or a west coast issue -- it's an American issue, and Seven Straight Nights is making Americans' support for lesbian and gay equality visible as never before.

Inlaws & Outlaws was shown as part of the entertainment & activities prior to and during the overnight vigils in the following cities:
