It's Ello Pride Day!
...and we're supporting thousands of LGBTQ protesters as they descend on Menlo Park today to protest Facebook's discriminatory “Real Name Policy.”
Facebook claims that deleting & freezing accounts of anyone that refuses to use their real name is about authenticity — but it’s more about money and selling information about you to advertisers.
Ello is a Public Benefit Corporation that doesn't require real names — which makes our community safer, more positive, and more tolerant.

Follow @ellopride today, where Ello superuser @sisterindica will report as protesters demand that Facebook withdraws from the San Francisco Pride Parade.
