Protest against Proposition 8

I hope you're familiar with Proposition 8 in California and the news that it passed, which is very bad news for the LGBT Community. Three other states passed legislation that denies our community equal rights.

A grass roots effort was started last Friday that has grown into an international protest this Saturday, 15th November. This is no longer a 4-state issue in the US--they are taking it national and international. Protest events are organised in 49 US states and in countries around the world.

There is an event organised for London outside the US Embassy at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday, 15th November to coincide with the hundreds of other events happening.

Come if you can. If you can't please at least pass this information along to your LGBT friends and allies.
