Gays Are People, Too!

Straight Led Protest Camps It Up

A gay/straight activist super team took to Greenville, South Carolina’s mean streets Monday night. After marching to city hall, the group set up camp in the popular Piazza Bergamo to remind pedestrians that gays face discrimination.

Participant Susan Craine told NBC affiliate WYFF, “They’re human just like us. Why wouldn’t we stay out for them? This is the last civil rights frontier.”

Craine and her allies joined hundreds of others in for the Soulforce-sponsored straight-led, seven-day protest extravaganza, Seven Straight Nights For Civil Rights. Alright!
