My Video of Chicago Gay Rights Rally Against Prop 8

Two weeks after Obama's election, Chicago's gay rights supporters took to the streets to celebrate hope. I went to the rally with several wonderful friends and I took my videocamera, which was mostly manned by Daisy Mertzel. People said it felt a lot like being in Grant Park on election night - a huge and very positive crowd. I'm pretty pleased with my little video impression of the day. I hope it captured the essence of being there. Yes, that's me seen from behind about midway through, holding a sign that says "My gay siblings deserve equal rights."
