It's Starbucks Appreciation Day!

Equally Wed, a same-sex marriage magazine, deemed today August 7 as Starbucks Appreciation Day in response to last week's hateful Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. Unlike Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks is a leader among companies in promoting equality.

Since then, at Starbucks' request, this day has been expanded to National Marriage Equality Day to also include other companies that support marriage equality, such as Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Kenneth Cole, Nike, and many more. Find more info at

Starbucks has been at the forefront of equal rights, first as an employer offering same-sex spousal benefits for the last 20 years, now up to and including endorsing marriage equality.

I see a "Grande Veranda" coffee with my name on it. And maybe a sandwich.... I will be spending money at Starbucks today... will you?
