Proposition 8: The Rally in Toronto
It was a miserable day. Wet and windy. But about sixty people turned out to join in the Day of Protest against Proposition 8. Even though we're Canadians and we have our rights. And it was GREAT.
Great to send a message of solidarity to our brothers and sisters in the United States who are still fighting for their human rights.
And hear the cars honk as they went by.
Great to stand up up for love. How often do you get a chance to do that?
Or say thank you?
Great to support gay couples.
And those who dream of marrying the one they love.
Great to be part of a huge rally for human equality.
And a new movement.
Something bigger than I am. Bigger than all of us. And really really BEAUTIFUL.
Oh sure I wished it hadn't rained today. I wish more people had turned out. But I'm glad I was there.
Because whatever the religious fanatics and pig bigots say or do, I know that I'll never stop fighting them.
And because our enemies made love a battlefield. We have no choice but to whup their sorry asses.
Because love is EVERYTHING.
And for EVERYONE...
Have a great weekend everyone...
