    BTW - please ask your straight friends to wear it as well.
    You don't have to be gay to support equality!

    How to make a White Knot
    Start with grosgrain (or satin) ribbon available at most fabric and craft stores. Use 5/8" wide ribbon and make 6" strips for large knots or use 3/8" wide ribbon and make 5" strips for medium knots.
    Step 1
    Step 2
    Step 3
    Step 4

    Cut the ends diagonally or cut triangles in them to help prevent fraying.
    Tie a knot in the center of the ribbon. Even out the ends as you pull tight.

    Tie another knot over the first knot and pull the ends of the ribbon to flatten them out.

    Pin it on vertically and you're good to go.

    I can do this, but is this well known? My gay friends hadn't heard of it.
