What do we want?

Nashville came out in the cold drizzle to join dozens of other cities around the country for a demonstration.
What were we demonstrating? Support for each other, righteous indignation? Yes. But most off all, we were demonstrating solidarity.
It’s one thing to live in a state such as Tennessee that forbids the equal right of marriage to all of its citizens, that’s a a battle lost in 2006 that still stings. It is a whole other thing to remove rights already in place. That’s what Prop 8 in California did and today, in solidarity the people that it effected were a single voice.

Gay and straight, married, single, black, white and brown, over 250,000 strong according to pledges across the country, today at 12:30pm central time, 1:30 eastern and 10:30am west — We all with one voice said: What do we want? Equality. When do we want it? Now. (click to see video)
