Gay activists John Aravosis and Robin Tyler launched the Web site DearMary.com on Feb. 13. They want-to convince Mary Cheney to stand up to her father and publicly oppose the amendment, Aravosis said. "She has been put in a unique place to make more difference than all of us can make combined," Aravosis said. "With power comes responsibility." Cheney in the past worked as a paid gay liaison for Coors Brewing Company and served on the board of the Republican Unity Coalition, a gay rights group, Aravosis said. But Cheney, 34, resigned from RUC last year. She is now director of vice presidential operations for the Bush- Cheney re-election campaign, with an annual salary nearing $75,000 after taxes, according to the Washington Post. Mary Cheney should speak out not only because of her personal family life but also because of her professional role, Aravosis said. "This is not some wallflower lesbian making cookies for her woman at home," Aravosis said. Officials at the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign did not respond to interview requests. DURING HER TENURE AS PROFES- sional gay advocate, Cheney urged the Republican Party not to focus on gay issues. "We can make sexual orientation a non-issue for the Republican Party, and we can help achieve equality for all gay and lesbian Americans," Mary Cheney said in an April 2002 statement, according to Newsweek. But now some conservative Republicans are actively supporting state and federal initiatives to ban gay marriage, and Cheney's father, the vice president, has said he will follow President Bush's lead on the issue. Dick Cheney said in 2000 that gay marriage should be decided by states, but recently said he will support Bush if the president backs a constitutional amendment banning legal recognition of gay couples, according to the Associated Press. The gay Log Cabin Republicans said last week that a Bush administration The lesbian daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney has remained silent about her father's support for a constitutional ban on gay marriage, prompting gay activists to ask, 'Have you seen Mary Cheney?' (Photo courtesy of DearMary.com) source told the group the president plans to publicly support the amendment, although he hasn't yet. Mary Cheney, who is in a long-term relationship, has made no public comment on her father's position on the federal amendment. Gay writer Michelangelo Signorile took Cheney to task in a column titled "Dear Mary" published in the Jan. 20 New York Press. Signorile's column inspired DearMary.com, Aravosis said. Signorile, who has visited the site, called it "a good tool to educate people" and reiterated his belief that Mary Cheney needs to speak up now to be viewed favorably by history. "Mary Cheney should publicly say that she disagrees with the president and with her father," Signorile said. "And I believe she cannot work for a campaign that would support a federal marriage amendment. And if they do support it, I believe she should step down." In its first five days, the Web site posted more than 2,150 letters to Mary Cheney and received an average of 50,000 hits per day, Aravosis said. Some 90 percent of the letters have a compassionate tone, he said. But one gay couple that waited in line in San Francisco for a marriage license shamed Mary in their letter on the site, saying that her silence made her worse than her father, who publicly supports a gay marriage ban. "If you do not speak now, Mary, you will rightfully be remembered only as part of the biggest disgrace against what being American is all about — the belief that everyone is equal," wrote Mikko and Ari from West Hollywood, Calif. "We hope you do the right thing. We wait for your answer." 0 ACTION!
