Wednesday evening, I was at the first New York City demonstration against California’s Proposition 8 (for those of you who do not know, California voted in the November 4 election to ban LGBT marriages). The Mormons spent $22 million on a their heterosexist campaign!
These are images from Wednesday night’s demonstration and march. According to organizers, 13,000 people showed up for the march. Whoopi Goldberg, Mark Shaiman (HAIRSPRAY), Gerard Allesandrini (FORBIDDEN BROADWAY), comedian Judy Gold and others where there to show their support.
And… oh, yes… my favorite chant of the night:
“What do we want?!”
“When do we want it?!”
