Prop 8 Protest in DC!

Mr Q and AJ attended the Prop 8 protest yesterday...by all accounts it turned out to be a huge success across the country...

As you'll be able to tell from the pictures, it was a wet and wild rally on the Mall!

The turnout was impressive given the limited amount of time organizers had to pull it together...

Good signs were everywhere...some simple...


...and many funny!

Unfortunately about half way through the walk, the skies decided to open up and the rain came pouring down in buckets! These two sad sacks seemed especially unprepared for any change in the weather...

But even with the rain the crowd was super enthusiastic and the tourists along the route were supportive with their clapping and honking!!

At the end of the day, the Gardener still can't get coverage on my health insurance or inherit my Social Security benefits, but days like this make you believe it will be possible at some point...
