Santa Cruzing Against Prop 8

“Looking out into a sea of candlelight beaming from inside rainbow-colored paper cups, 100 troubadours from the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus gathered around the Town Clock [in Santa Cruz, Calif.] singing, “Everywhere I go, I’m going to let it shine.” Two hours before performing at First Congregational Church, the chorus opened a vigil Saturday that was timed with other rallies statewide in support of same-sex marriage. Several hundred lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and straight friends gathered to hold hands, sing and sign petitions to revoke Proposition 8, the November ballot measure that overturned a California Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage.” [SJMN]
