Voice for Equality: Rainn Wilson

Rainn Wilson is an American actor. He is known for his roles as the egomaniacal Dwight Schrute on the American version of the television comedy, The Office, as the leading role in the 2008 comedy film, The Rocker, and assistant mortician Arthur Martin on HBO's Six Feet Under. Learn more here.

Mr. Wilson was photographed wearing a White Knot at the Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, CA on February 21, 2009. The White Knot for Equality organization is dedicated to the idea of marriage equality. One of their quotes is “Everyone should have the right to tie the knot,” and they illustrate this point by producing and distributing White Knots nationally and worldwide. They encourage marriage equality supporters to “wear the White Knot every day to show support and to create conversation. Share the White Knot and spread the word that all loving couples deserve the same legal rights, benefits, and respect that civil marriage bestows." [Link]
