Since Election Day, gays have been out in full force protesting the passage of Proposition 8 by California voters, which outlaws same-sex marriage in that state.
On Wednesday, thousands of people marched in Manhattan, including in front of a Mormon temple. The campaign to pass the proposition was largely funded by Mormons at the beck and call of church leaders.
Tomorrow (Sat, Nov 15th) marks a national day of protest against Propostion 8. In New York, the demo is from 1:30–3:30pm at City Hall, 260 Broadway. For more info, go to JoinTheImpact.com.
Whether or not gays should be championing the institution of marriage is still a vital topic for debate, but what Prop 8 really boils down to is a creepy effort to keep queers in their place. Second-class citizenship is so 20th-century. Time for a change!!!!!
