Smoke Rings or Wedding Rings

I read a very illuminating report today about cigarettes and the quest for gay rights. You might ask how those two are related. The truth is they're not but the comparison points out a serious issue.

According to an article on the Advocate's website, the LGBT community spends $7.9 billion dollars each year on cigarettes. The author didn't say where she got her figures but that is apparently 65 times more than our community spends on the quest for civil rights.

Let that sink in for a minute. We spend more on our smoking addiction than we do on promoting our own cause for equality. Does anyone else see a problem?

  1. Interesting info but unless we can verify this data, its just an anti-smoker's campaign slogan.
