A few weeks ago, after getting an e-mail from friend and artist Danielle Kerese, Lesbiatopia posted an article about the gay hating members of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka,Kansas.
The disgust for these people and their spread of hate and negativity is felt by many. But instead of letting these bastards get the last word Danielle Kerese , who is straight, decided to do something positive and designed the artwork for a t-shirt on threadless.com as a form of positive counter statement to the WBC crazies.
Danielle Kerese says on the website:
I have just learned about a church group called The Westboro Baptist Church. These people are hateful and disgusting. Seeing their message displayed on the news is disturbing to say the least. Its really enough to make a person sick. I did this illustration as my own personal protest against their bull@#$^ and everyone else who preaches such ridiculous nonsense!
This design is about love, not hate.
So, I'm asking all of you to take time out today and vote on her design at threadless.com. Considering Danielle has supported us I feel it is our duty to support her. If Danielle's design gets enough votes and positive feedback then the shirt will be available for all of us to buy and wear proudly. But don't delay we only have five days left.

Keep spreading the good gay word!
