Nellie and I made signs, brought cameras, and marched at the gay rights protest downtown last night. We marched with our friend Sarah King and were pleased to see a big turnout, and a nicely organized protest.
Guess what? It's not cool to rewrite state constitutions to strip people of their legal rights. On behalf of my gay siblings and all the people I love, NO, I can't accept this.
My friends Tom and George just moved to California and, after many years together, were legally married. For about a week. Until James Dobson and his bigoted cohorts pushed Prop 8 through and rewrote the state constitution to strip gays of their legal rights. Now Tom and George aren't married anymore.
Best picture of the night - a little boy holding a sign that says "I love my gay nanny."
