Proposition 8: The Anger and the Beauty
I didn't think they were going to win.
I believe this battle will be won at the ballot box, when attitudes change. And politicians stop being cowards.
But it still hurts me to see how disappointed my brothers and sisters are in California tonight.
And like every gay person in the world tonight it also makes me angry.
On the other hand I know we're going to win in the end. And I'm so proud of the way the Prop Hate fighters have battled the bigots. They didn't have the money the homophobes had.
But still they fought back so proud, so strong, so gentle...
And still are.
Sometimes I wish we weren't so gentle.
If I was loose in the streets of California tonight I probably would have got into trouble.
But I wouldn't ask my brothers and sisters in California to change a thing. Because their struggle for equality and respect is as beautiful as they are. And that's why they are going to WIN.
On the other hand that doesn't mean I won't be wearing this t-shirt tonight....
In solidarity eh?
Oh yeah....one more thing. Although I'm really angry, and scarily butch, and REALLY ready to rumble.
May the Gay God help me.
I still LOVE this sappy video...
