On Thursday March 5, the Supreme Court brought up the issue of the marriage equality for the LGBT community, a move that was banned thanks to Proposition 8 of last November. Prop 8 would undo the 18,000 marriages. But during the 100,000 SF March, the repeal of Prop 8 looks in our favor (hopefully). The nation will have to wait 90 days for their final decision.
The energy in the Downtown Civic Center at 8 a.m. was amazingly supportive. Lesbian couples with their children, gay allies, loving gay partners, reporters, and children were all around to fight the hate message from organizations like Yes On 8 fighting for religious beliefs and protecting the children.
I was there until 2, and I was physically and emotionally drained. I teared up a little. I would like to talk about the people I met, but I’ll save it for another day in a finalized manner. Here’s a few pictures that I really enjoyed.
Gotta love the Children.
The signs were amazing.
This sign was hilariously powerful.
End the day with a sign of love and affection.
