nationwide proposition 8 protests

today, there are protests against proposition 8 all over the country.

i haven't gone to a protest in years; i got so burnt out on indiscriminate signwaving my first year of college. but, there's something i find so powerful about the fact that so many people are being mobilized to get together in their communities on the same day, all through the country, in response to california's brazenly disgusting act of revoking the right of civil marriage from same-sex couples. the organization of this protest feels anything but indiscriminate.

the demonstration in Chicago is at 12:30, at the corner of Adams and Dearborn. i will be there.
