You’ll want to order a Venti — or some wine or a beer, wear your Nikes, bring your Kindle and reboot your Windows PC. There’s a rally being organized for Friday night at the E Olive Way “Gaybucks” to celebrate Washington corporate support for progress toward marriage equality in the state.
No telling if the Gays for the Bucks – Thank Starbucks for the support! rally is a corporate marketing scheme but, in this case, no worries. UPDATE: Ebbie, in comments, says “NO” way to the corporate marketing and that this is grassroots all the way . Liza Svetlana Zinina posted about the 6p rally to our Facebook page, saying:
Come join us in support of Starbucks and other Washington companies and corporations who have voiced their support of legalizing gay marriage in WA
As for the Gaybucks thing, CHS didn’t invent it. The conversation about whether it’s a good — or, at least, not too annoying — nickname percolates up here and there through the years. We’re going with it. Tonight, especially, it seems appropriate.
