Voice for Equality: Kyle MacLachlan

Kyle MacLachlan is an American actor, best known for his roles in cult films Blue Velvet as Jeffrey Beaumont, in Showgirls as Zack Carey, and as Paul Atreides in Dune, as well as his television series roles as Orson Hodge in Desperate Housewives, Trey MacDougal in Sex and the City and Special Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks.

Mr. MacLachlan was photographed wearing a White Knot at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, CA on April 18, 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]
