Hey, how was your weekend? Anything interesting happen, like – oh, I don't know – say a national protest involving thousands and thousands of people from coast to coast (and in other countries, too) who peacefully but forcefully asserted their personhood and demanded their rights? I don't know how your experience was, but I'm going to guess invigorating. That's how it felt to me in San Francisco. I can't be the only one who is fighting the urge to keep screaming “Equal rights!,” “Now!” It felt great to be a part of something bigger than your own life. Plus, who doesn't like to stop traffic now and then? And, best of all, it's not over. The organizers of Join the Impact are still working, as are countless others, to fight for our rights. So, today in celebration of what was a truly a grassroots success, please feel free to share your stories in the comments section. If you want, email me a photo of your protest (include the location) and I'll make a photo quilt of them all to post later tonight.
p.s. What protest would be complete without the naked guy? (Though, sadly, no naked gals.)
UPDATE: This is what 1 million gays (and lovely straight friends) who are tired of not being equal looks like. [Click to enlarge.]
p.s. I am, however, miffed that no one sent me a photo of the Naked Gal in Seattle. Share, people, share!
p.p.s. Wait, I think I found her. Oh, Seattle, you're funny.
p.p.p.s. Well, if you can't see the photo please enjoy the video instead. I need to get to Seattle more often. Seriously.
