A Time for Love.

On November 8, 2008, 10,000 people (men, women, children, dogs. gay, bi, transgendered, straight. black, white, latino, asian.) descended on Los Angeles to unite in protest over the passing of Prop 8, 52% to 48%.

Mr. FGD and I attended, along with friends and family.

Chad, a million thanks for the following photos, which I think speak for themselves.

In the words of WeezerMonkey, "This is not simply some text on a ballot. This is not a time to say, "Sorry it didn't pass." To do so trivializes this monumentally important cause and, frankly, is incredibly offensive.

Your choice affected people's lives.
Your inking "yes" took away rights from an entire group of people.
You took away rights.
Read it again.
YOU took away rights.

And, if you don't understand this, you make me really sad."

some powerful stuff there.

Sable Crow said...

Thank you so much. I'm so touched that you are taking such a stand. We need you so much. This is an American fight, not a gay fight.

You're extraordinary.

Those pictures are amazing! I know you're not doing this for the praise, but you're such a rock star for fighting as tirelessly as you do.

AGAIN with the tears! I swear, this Prop has made me a water faucet.

I had someone ask me why this Prop has affected me so, because it really has, down to my core. This person pointed out that I don't have any gay family members, I don't even have any gay friends. But I look at these pictures and it doesn't matter that I don't know these people personally...they are all PEOPLE and they are all deserving of love and opportunity.

I agree with Claire...I am so inspired by your passion and your compassion.
