Saturday’s Marriage Equality protests, in cities everywhere

This past Saturday, in cities all throughout the United States, individuals gathered to protest Proposition 8 in California, as well as other propositions in many states that limited the rights of non-heterosexual couples. According to the New York Times account, there were tens of thousands of people protesting overall, including about nine thousand in LA, four thousand in NYC, and a thousand in DC and Vegas and Minneapolis. Overall, there were protests in over 150 cities nationwide.

As one of only two states that is currently allowing gay marriages, Connecticut is in a unique position to show the rest of the country how successful non-heterosexual marriage can be.

Here are some photos from our local New Haven protest this past Saturday… and note that even the dog is, in fact, wearing a gay rights t-shirt:
