We need gays and straights, across the country Saturday. First the basics, then why:
WHAT: Nationwide protests are happening simultaneously at every city hall across America:
WHEN: This Saturday (Nov. 15) 10:3o a.m. West Coast, 11:3o a.m. Mountain, 12:3o p.m. Central, 1:3o p.m. East Coast.
WHERE: Your city hall.
WHY we need you, nationwide:
We are not inferior. Over three dozen states have said we are. Last Tuesday, the largest state in the nation repeated the rebuke. Prop 8 was the last straw.
Voters have told us repeatedly that we are so disgusting that the mere presence of us would soil the institution of marriage.
We are not disgusting. We are equal. It is time to respond.
Not state by state, collectively, as a nation. Gay people are part of this culture, and degrading us has got to stop.
We love each other, just like the rest of you. We will marry each other regardless. Some of us will choose to marry, others will not. But laws that say we are unfit to marry are an abomination and will not stand.
Saturday's protest is not about one ballot initiative in one state. It is a signal that we have had enough.
We need masses of gay people and straight supporters to show up and be counted on our side.
Anyone in America who believes in equality, we ask you to stand with us this Saturday.
Stand up for what's right.
We especially need people in the interior. We need the public to notice, this in not just an uprising on the coasts.
