Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A red equal sign is popping up everywhere in social media. What exactly does it mean?

ABC News reports that the symbol is the result of a social media campaign launched by the Human Rights Campaign in support of gay marriage.

The US Supreme Court is in the midst of hearing cases regarding the issue.

In a Tuesday Facebook post, the organization asked supporters of gay marriage to “paint the town red” by wearing the symbol on clothing or adopting it for their Facebook pages.
