Upcoming Protests - Prop 8 + Marriage Equality!

I will try to keep a list here of any upcoming Marriage Equality Rallies or Prop 8 Protests. Please email me if you have something to submit or simply add it to the comments, and i'll post it for you.

The new year brings us a new energy for our fight for Marriage Equality for the LGBT community. Gays and Lesbians deserve the right to marry and have their love equally recognized. Show your support by attending one of these protests near you. Invite a friend to an upcoming Prop 8 Protest and tell them to invite a friend.

PIECES OF 8 - CREATIVE MARCH
EMBARCARDERO, SAN FRANCISCO
Saturday, January 24, 2009
10:30am - 1:30pm
Embarcadero
The Sidewalks along Embarcadero from Justin Hermann Plaza to Marina Green.
San Francisco, CA

What: An exhibition of performing arts in conjunction with the BACORR protest against the anti-choice and anti-marriage march along the Embarcadero from Justin Herman Plaza to Marina Green. Artists will perform on the theme of oppression of women or the attempts by religious organizations to impose their “values” on our laws, especially on abortion and same-sex marriage.
Who: acoustic musicians, poets, comics, clowns, mimes, performance artists, painters, rappers, actors, sculptors and anyone who wishes to artistically express their support for equal rights for all.

When the Catholic Church sends their Crusade to San Francisco to try to eliminate a woman’s right to choose and our freedom to marry the partner of our choice we are going to greet them with an outburst of creativity! Instead of insults, we will hurl artistic performances at them. We will captivate the spectators and tourists, and, of course, the media, so the message of equal rights will dominate the day.

VALENTINE'S DAY KISS-IN
LOS ANGELES CITY HALL
2:00 pm
LA City Hall
Between 1st and Temple on Spring (200 N Spring St.)

They took away our rights, they made us second class citizens, and now they’re trying to take away the marriages we already legally obtained. Well F that. Show them that no matter what they do to us, we are and will continuing to love.

So on the day that celebrates love, bring your protest signs and yell to your heart’s content at 2:00 pm… then at 2:30. KISS!

Not only is it fun, but we are showing them that they can try to take away and invalidate our marriage, but our relationships, families, and love will not be extinguished.
