Wanda Sykes and "Prop H8"
Well, Wanda Sykes is now out there and working her behind off. Here's a video clip of her speech at a Prop 8 rally in Las Vegas yesterday.
The passage of California's antigay, discriminatory Proposition 8 has led to nearly two weeks of protests nationwide, including a rally yesterday in Raleigh which I attended. Approximately 1400 determined LGBT folks and our allies rallied behind the state legislative meeting and marched to the Governor's mansion. People are energized and ready to fight. The passage of "Prop H8" feels like a seminal moment for the LGBT community, much like the Stonewall Riots in 1969.
