STONEWALL 2.0

It's a far cry from a bunch of drag queens fighting off a police raid on the Stonewall Bar or—earlier here on the West Coast—Compton's Cafeteria; no less so for word-of-mouth having amplified a net-driven rage of protest gone viral. So you don't need me to tell you where to be today; but, just in case. It's history in the making. Exactly one week since Amy Balliett and Willow Witte of Join the Impact announced a national call to action for the LGBTQI community to protest Proposition 8 and to fight for equal rights across the nation, the community has come together at global numbers predicted to exceed 1 million in 300 participating cities across the country.

See you there!
