Out Of The Darkness

Last night was extraordinary.

Here, in a city much more known for its after-hours clubs and celebrity spottings than for progressive activism, a couple of hundred people came out to stand up for fairness and equality at our Light Up the Night for Equality demonstration. We stood, united, in the heart of South Beach, and we all did our part to keep the conversation going.

And, as a bonus, I had the pleasure of meeting superstar activist / blogger Eric Levan, who encouraged Miami to RAGE ON!

So glad you posted the pix and even happier the protest went well. I hope it makes a difference soon.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Looks like it was quite a night.

I really hope the momentum keeps building.

I am planning on being at the next demonstration in mid-january in Chicago.

Ever since the rights of Gays and Lesbians were stomped on with Prop8 and the other ballot measures around the country, it's just been gnawing at me.

I know it's been a problem for... well for ever. But until this past election, I at least felt we were moving in the right direction.

I really hope this setback was the wake up call for all reasonable people - gay and Straight.

We need to demand truly equal rights for all people.
