Gay Wallet

Genia Stevens, editor of the lesbian and gay blog SistersTalk, has announced the launch of GayWallet.com – a social network designed to connect the LGBT community with companies and organizations that promote or support gay and lesbian rights. GayWallet.com allows users to create groups, upload videos, post pictures, write blog posts and participate in various forum discussions.

The new LGBT social network, GayWallet.com, is a peaceful protest against California’s Proposition 8 and other anti-gay legislation in the United States, according to a press release regarding the site’s launch. It is a modern-day movement that utilizes today’s technology — the internet and social media web sites. Stevens says, “Gay Americans buys goods and services. We spend our money on cars and houses. Our tax dollars are used for schools and roads and social services. We deserve nothing less than equality. If a company or an organization wants to help right-wing religious fanatics strip us of our equal rights, it’s only fair that we know who those companies are so we can spend our money elsewhere.”

Social networking web sites are a growing trend and are often utilized by individuals and organizations that need to gather like-minded individuals in a central location. TwitterMoms.com gathers mommies who micro-blog using Twitter, and Women on Career Break is a social networking web site that gathers women who are in-between jobs in a central location. GayWallet.com seeks to connect the LGBT community with like-minded individuals who support equality for gays and lesbians.
