Your Prop 8. Protest Dance Card

As a service to our readers, Queerty is going to attempt to create a comprehensive listing of all the upcoming protests against Prop. 8 and other gay marriage bans across the country.

Since collectively, the you folks are  smarter and more resourceful than me, I’m asking you to lend me a hand by listing this week’s protests in the comments. To make this easier, please include a link, so we can confirm it.

If this sounds like we’re advocating our readership to get out there and peacefully protest in acts of visible disobedience, that’s because we are–angrily demanding equal rights is the new after-work cocktail, people.

UPDATE: Text “makethecase” to 68398 to get updates on protests.

      I wish this kind of energy exited before the vote..

      The complacency killed us. I guess we didn’t take these freak cults and religious zealots serious enough.

      If there is any good at all to come of this it will be the the renewed energy and urgency of defeating the right wing and securing our human rights.

      Guys, let me ask a serious question: Do elections mean anything to us? I mean, the opposition won fair and square, and a lot of us are acting like spoiled children. We all know we’ll get our chance. The tide is turning our way. We’ll get there. Let’s just do it the right way, with class and dignity.

      Tim, are you saying that African-Americans in the South were not acting with class and dignity when they protested, boycotted, went on freedom marches? We’re just doing the same things.
      Second, the minority is supposed to be protected from the majority in this country. You cannot allow minority rights to be voted on by the majority.
      We need to speak up and be counted that we will not let our rights be trampled on.

      If you can believe it, I have gay friends that roll their eyes when I tell them I’m attending one of the protest/rallies (have been to 4 so far, before and after the election ). I remind them that when they do obtain the full legal right to marry, and they will someday, they’ll know who to thank, those of us who spent our Saturday nights marching for what we believe in.

      I’m not saying everyone has to be a political machine but instead of saying “why weren’t you doing this before the election?” a simple “thank you” will suffice.

      Canada is in too!

      On Saturday, November 15, Queer McGill invites all Montrealers (queer or not) who care about civil liberties and equality under the law to join the peaceful demonstration against these reactionary outcomes. The gathering will begin in front of McGill’s Roddick gates and will conclude in front of the American consulate at Rene-Levesque and St. Alexandre. Though Canada granted same-sex unions equality under the law in 2005, Canadian queers recognize that the struggle for recognition and respect continues, and that “change” cannot truly advance if entire groups of society continue to be oppressed.

      When: Saturday, November 15th at 1:00pm
      Where: Start—McGill’s Roddick Gates (rue Sherbrooke and ave. McGill College)
      End— The United States Consulate (1155 rue St-Alexandre)

      Corey Johnson
      (646) 246-4848

      MEDIA RELEASE

      THOUSANDS EXPECTED TO ATTEND
      PROTEST WEDNESDAY AT NYC MORMON TEMPLE
      ADJACENT TO LINCOLN CENTER

      DEMONSTRATORS WILL CONDEMN
      THE LDS CHURCH’S LEADING ROLE IN
      PASSAGE OF CALIFORNIA’S ANTI-GAY PROPOSITION 8

      NEW YORK CITY (Nov. 11, 2008) — Several thousand human rights
      advocates will march on the Mormon Temple in a peaceful protest on
      Wednesday, November 12 at 6:30pm. Demonstrators will speak out
      against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for the
      active role it played in passing California’s Proposition 8, a
      constitutional amendment that overturns a state Supreme Court
      decision in May which legalized same-sex unions.

      The Manhattan New York Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
      Day Saints is located at 125 Columbus Ave at 65th Street. The protest
      will run from 6:30pm to 8pm.

      “Hatred has no place in society and it has no place in state
      constitutions,” said Corey Johnson, co-organizer of the protest.
      “Proposition 8 robs the LGBT community of its dignity and equality as
      American citizens. While human rights activists in California work to
      overturn this shameful amendment, we here in New York protest in
      solidarity with them, and we will work to ensure that a similar law
      never happens here.”

      LGBT activists and their allies will march in protest in front of the
      Mormon Temple, carrying signs and banners, including a 75 -foot
      banner declaring “God Loves Gay Marriage”. This was handsewn for the
      demonstration by veteran activist Gilbert Baker, the creator of the
      Rainbow Flag, which is the universal symbol of LGBT liberation.

      The Manhattan demonstration follows on the heels of protests in
      California that begin last week after the passage of Prop. 8. Tens of
      thousands of people have marched in anger through San Francisco, Los
      Angeles, Palm Springs, San Diego, Sacramento, Oakland, Fresno, Salt
      Lake City, Dallas and Chicago, among other cities. A national day of
      protest is planned for Saturday, November 15, organized by Join the
      Impact. For details on events across America, visit
      http://www.jointheimpact.com/.

      It is estimated that members of the LDS Church contributed more than
      $20 million to ensure passage of Proposition 8, while Church leaders
      orchestrated a vicious propaganda campaign from the pulpit. The
      proposition passed narrowly with 52% of the vote, versus 48% against.

      More than 18,000 gay and lesbian couples have tied the knot in
      California since June 17. New York State Gov. David Paterson issued a
      directive in May requiring state agencies to recognize same-sex
      marriages performed elsewhere. Paterson has said that if the Assembly
      and Senate pass legislation for gay marriage, he will sign it.

      ATTENTION MEDIA: For advance interviews with Corey Johnson, please
      call Jay Blotcher at(845) 612-9837. Johnson, Gilbert Baker, local
      politicians and same-sex married couples will be available at the
      demonstration.

      With a name like FROGGYOLA you need all the dignity you can get. Yes, you may borrow mine, girlfriend.

      Look all I’m saying is that we have to live in a society and it’s not going to win us any popularity contests acting bitchy when we lost the vote, not once but twice. I’m sure some of these homophobic assholes are just waiting for us to give them an excuse.

      What did we really lose, anyway? Four judges handed down the “right” to marry. Wouldn’t you rather win it with the support of the majority? I really believe that may happen in a few years. Doing what we’re doing now could backfire on us big time. I don’t want my community being seen as imposing our way of life on the rest of society.

      @Tim:

      You are wise beyond your years. These bitch-fest protests by mobs of shrieking, petulant children will backfire, and in fact is doing so already. I’ve been hearing from a lot of people that were on the fence about 8 but went with NO, but are now pissed because all this looks like is a bunch of brats who are mad because they didn’t get their way.

      Americans really do cherish the power of their vote, and these mobs greatly underestimate the backlash of public sentiment when you make people feel they are being disenfranchised. And yes, that goes the same for some of those who voted NO, but place greater importance on the democratic process and rule of law.

      Froggy, the day you learn to spell “cynical” is the day you can get in my face about anything. And that’s not today sweetie.

      I want my rights too, but not like this. You guys are making trouble for everyone. You might want to look up “backlash” in the dictionary. There are other ways to go about this than pissing into the wind.

      As for my “apathy” – I can only say that some of us have jobs and can’t afford to dance around in the streets all day. It took a lot of money to finance this losing campaign and a lot of individuals contributed to it. Jobs = $. $ = No on 8.

      Farmer Ted: thanks for your kind words. I get the feeling you “play for the other team”, but it’s nice to find common ground.

      Seriously, this makes you (and the rest of us) look really bad. Like we’re not going to even attempt to get along with the rest of society unless they give us everything we want – and NOW.

      And believe me, I’m not being a dick about this – I’m really trying to help you understand something here – THE WORLD IS NOT FAIR. The sooner you understand this the better off you’ll be. From an older gay man to what I percieve is a young gay man, I’m offering you wisdom.

Furthermore, if correcting my spelling mistakes is all you have, then perhaps the gay community is best served if you stay home and eat your Funyons tonight instead of helping. I don’t and won’t embrace your “gee golly, let’s wait to see what they do” attitude. It is pathetic as your self-righteous “dignity” is. You make me sick.

      The New York Protest march unfurled a hand-sewn banner by organizer Gilbert Baker while 1000s carried signs which read “Separation of Church and State” and “Tax the Mormon Church” and chants like “Straight. Gay. Black. White. Gay Marriage is a Civil Right.” The protest started at the Mormon Church (of Latter Day Saints) at 125 Columbus Ave and with the aid of Norman Siegel; civil rights lawyer, we were able to march down Broadway to Columbus Circle.

      It seems that with the growing media interest that this is snowballing into ‘Stonewall on Steroids’ with the inevitable March on Washington to Come perhaps in the Spring and predicted to bring out easily more than a million especially since the “Non-protester” types see the time to protect and fight for our Equal Rights and the same civil rights as others who can marry. Many gays believe that an Obama administration may be Hope for Change on Gay Legal Marriage and protecting Gay families.

      The November 15th National Protest on Saturday is listed at http://www.jointheprotest.com as every city in the US mobilizes for the right to Gay Marriage and opposition to Proposition 8 which passed in California, as well as anti-Gay Marriage wins in Arizona and Florida.

      Prop 8 Protest/Boycott Rally – San Diego, Saturday 11/22 5-7pm
      Manchester Grand Hyatt, 1 Market Place, San Diego (map)
      Fight Back Against Prop 8 – Boycott Manchester Grand Hyatt
      Doug Manchester is one of the leading funders ($125,000) of Proposition 8, a California ballot initiative that discriminates against LGBT couples. While Hyatt may officially disavow Manchester’s contributions to Proposition 8 as a personal choice, the fact remains that their multi-million dollar LGBT marketing efforts must be seen as little more than sheer hypocrisy when the revenue this marketing attracts is then funneled into efforts that bite the hand which feeds them. In such a situation, we always have the ability to choose not to feed them any longer.
