Nationwide Protests Against Prop. 8

Here in Memphis about 100 protesters gathered at City Hall to protest the passage of the anti-gay marriage Prop. 8 in CA and support equality and LGBT civil rights. (It was windy, wet and COLD!)
Congrats to Amy Livingston with the Women's Action Coalition in Memphis for organizing the local demonstration!

It was inspiring to see how many DID turn up considering how bitterly cold it was; I was really proud of my city today.
