Have A Gay Day is dedicated to Jamey Rodemeyer.

Jamey encountered bullying throughout middle school because of his sexuality. Jamey committed suicide the morning of September 18, 2011.

On September 20,2011, Michael Knote started a memorial page for Jamey after watching a news story about him. He founded a Facebook page and non-profit organization called “Have a Gay Day”, on February 25, 2012 referring to the double meaning of the word “gay”—”homosexual” and “cheerful”. -Source Wikipedia

Beyond creating a memorial page Michael noted that social media kept trying to get more “likes” surrounding tragedy.  To create that safe space Have A Gay Day was born.

Our Logo:

Our logo was designed in 2012 with an adaption to a logo used in 2010 with the familiar smile and face and eyes that has become known around the world as Have A Gay Day.  The artist that helped create this logo for us is Ruth Selwyn.  Over the years it’s had a few adaptations and updates but the original logo and wording stays true.  Have A Gay Day.
