Yes, There Will Be Demonstrators Outside the White House When Obama Signs the Matthew Shepard Act

But this time, Obama’s sign holders won’t be protesting him. While his HRC dinner was picketed by angry gays, Obama’s Wednesday ceremonial signing of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 — which you care about because it includes the Matthew Shepard Act — will be met by “parents of gays and lesbians, teachers and activists” organized by the education-focused group Equality Forum. Attendees will hit up 1600 Pennsylvania at noon “carrying photos of hate crime murder victims including Harvey Milk and Matthew Shepard.” You know, to point out the obvious. Maybe Bash Back or Queer LiberAction will show up too, and we can do a group photo?
