Randy Jackson was photographed September 18, 2009 in Los Angeles, California at the White Knot stand at the Emmy Awards Gift Suite enthusiastically holding a White Knot Pack, which includes two White Knots and a messaging card. 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]
