http://www.coffeehousetalks.com/2011/05/for-next-generation-of-lawyers-lgbt.htmlThe demonstration itself was amazing. At I looked at my classmates stand, all I could see was a rising wall of black robes. Dean Caminker paused in his introduction from pure shock that it could possibly be this many people walking out. No one hooted, no one hollered, no one jeered, we just silently and powerfully declared that we are not going to remain there for this man's honor. I nearly cried when a couple people in the audience started to applaud before catching themselves. One of my friends told me she had never felt so obviously supported in her life. Outside, it was clear this was a celebration of our LGBT friends, family, classmates, and loved ones. Check out the attitude in the room in this video (in which I am also interviewed - note that the "he" giving the introduction refers to Caminker):
Rob Portman (R-OH) also voted against gay adoption.
