What do you do if you make hummus for a living — but you're also one of three plaintiffs in Utah's same-sex marriage lawsuit?
You create a "Hummusexual" T-shirt.
The light-hearted attire is a way for Derek Kitchen and Moudi Sbeity, owners of Laziz Foods, to promote their Mediterranean dips and spreads and encourage Utahns to show support for marriage equality. Last March, Kitchen and Sbeity, joined two other couples in a lawsuit alleging Utah's gay marriage law was unconstitutional.
"We realize that, overall, it's not smart (or popular) for businesses to side with political issues," Sbeity said in an email to The Tribune, "but our lives are on the line here, and we hope to turn that around to our advantage, and make sure that businesses take a firm stand for equality."
