The band are outspoken supporters of equality for all people and GLAAD's grassroots promotion of understanding, acceptance and advancement in the LGBT community.
"Our band has one simple message to spread - keep an open mind and be accepting of people and ideas which might seem different to you," Bradley also said. "In keeping with that message, we are very happy to announce this exclusive shirt design with 100% of the profits being donated directly to GLAAD. We feel that everyone out there has the right to be happy, and that you should not be discriminated against because of your sexuality. We'd also love to remind people that just because you're heterosexual, it doesn't mean that you should ignore the issue of LGBT rights. Human history is riddled with examples of extreme prejudice against people and ideas that others simply do not understand, and we're passionate about spreading the message that just because you don't agree with or understand somebody, that doesn't immediately, make them wrong."
Amen to that!
