Where did #samesexsunday come from?

Same Sex Sunday on Twitter | The Bilerico Project:
"Bil and I were IMing the other day about the usual stuff (boys, politics and social media) when we hit on a great idea: Same Sex Sunday on Twitter.

The concept is pretty simple. Its #followfriday gone gay, gay, gay.

Each Sunday recommend LGBT people or organizations on Twitter that you think others should be following. Say a few words to describe the people/groups, link to their Twitter account and end with the hashtag #samesexsunday.

Example: Mad, bad and fabulous to know: @bilerico @jerame @buffawhat @bilericodc #samesexsunday

This will be a great way to connect and share info with other LGBT people. Same Sex Sunday begins this coming Sunday."

Posted way back on April 2, 2009. I didn't know I was already writing for Bilerico at that time! Wow! How awesome! So Bil and Michael are the brains behind #samesexsunday? Amazing! I'm pretty sure that Michael also had a little something to do with getting folks to use #NEM instead of #NationalEqualityMarch or some of the other hashtags cropping up around the march.
