Where Were You When Equality Died?
For many of us, we’ll always recall where we were and what we were doing when we heard that Prop 8 had passed. Last November, when we took to the streets to express our outrage and disbelief that the California Constitution – the very document that is supposed to protect the rights of every citizen -- had been amended to discriminate against hundreds of thousands of citizens.
One year later we will take to the streets again. All over the state tomorrow, on November 4, people will gather to remind the world that discrimination is never acceptable – and that we will not stop until this injustice is repaired.
West Hollywood/Silverlake -- Meet at 7PM at the corner of Vermont Ave and Santa Monica Blvd. We’ll march to El Barcito in Sunset Junction – possibly the first lesbian bar in LA and the 1967 birthplace of the Los Angeles LGBT rights movement . We’ll look back at LGBT history and forward to the day we bury Prop 8. Sponsored by OUTWest. Event page.
