    The Yes On Prop 8 signs are being put back up in the part of Los Angeles County that I live in.

    There is a, so far peaceful, war going on in California. That is exactly what it feel like.

    I also want to mention that I went to the Rally in West Hollywood. It was an incredible experience: very inspirational and it is the experience of a lifetime to be a part of the civil rights movement.

    I would highly recommend attending these.

    A few rules to be aware of when attending and putting these PEACEFUL events together This was written for West Hollywood but I think that they should apply anywhere...

    LA Gay Center


    Review and share information about actions related to Proposition 8 here. Because the Center is providing this information as a resource and is not organizing these events (unless otherwise indicated), please contact the event organizer if you've got questions about a particular action.
    A few things to remember:
    • The police are not our enemy. Top city officials support our cause, including the mayor, the city attorney and the heads of the police and sheriff's department. They are doing their job to protect you and the community. Individual police officers, however, may occasionally act in ways that are not in accordance with what the top brass wants. If you have concerns about police treatment, please contact the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's Legal Services Department: 323-993-7670

    • Don't attack reporters. We've heard disturbing reports about a few people verbally assaulting the press. By and large, the media in Los Angeles cover LGBT-related issues fairly and responsibly. Please discourage people from showing hostility to reporters. If you read or see stories you think are not fair or balanced, please send an email to media@lagaycenter.org.

    • Be smart about signs! Creative signs generate press attention, but signs that attack any group of people or contain foul language may not help our cause. Prop. 8 passed by a slim margin of people, most of whom don't hate LGBT people, but were misled by a deceptive advertising campaign. Signs that position all supporters of Prop 8 as people who hate us may not help our cause.
    Have an action you would like to submit? Please send an email to: Prop8Actions@lagaycenter.org.
    And please join the Center's email list to receive the latest news and information.

    I live just two blocks away from LA Mormon Temple, the site of the protests last week. I was surprised to find about 50-75 No on 8 protesters in front of the temple yesterday as I drove by about noon. I came home hours later, about 4 I think, and there were a few more, some across the street. As far as I know, this was a completely spontaneous protest because I had heard no plans for another protest here. It was good to see, and they got a lot of supportive honks from people as they drove by.

    May One suggest any catholics participating in this. That you target your own Church/ Religion, as it's one of the worst perpetrators involved in preventing homosexuals from getting equality, on a world stage.

    People may say oh but the catholics are to fragmented to of been organised enough to of done anything. I don't accept this, as not so long ago, this protestant Island was invaded by world youth day, a catholic thing; pedophiles paradise. They were very organised.

    So I hope people of other religions are not abusing the Mormons ( as an outlet) when you should be abusing your own religion, as I'm sure they too had a finger in the pie.

    I read here on RJ, a number of times. How could any self respecting homosexual vote republican. I ask how can any self respecting homosexual belong to any religion? I gave mine up, as how can you be a pure homosexual, and be religious. Religion was a choice, my sexuality was not.

    Original song about love and equality, inspired by the equal rights movement born from the passage of Proposition 8.

    LYRICS:

    When you're in doubt take my hand
    I'll stand by your side tonight cause
    We will be better when we are together and
    We are united in love

    When in despair take my arm
    As I hold you close to me and
    We will go farther when we are together cause
    We are united in love

    When you're feeling good
    I'll capture the time
    When you're feeling sad
    I'll help you remember
    When you're feeling fine
    We'll stay on our path
    When you're feeling bad
    I will be there for you and

    Our love will sing loud and strong
    Our love will keep going on

    When you're in fear take my heart
    I'll give you a hug tonight cause
    We will be better when we are together and
    We are united in love

    When you're in angst take my lead
    I'll show you the way today cause
    We will go farther when we are together cause
    We are united in love

    When we're feeling rich
    I'll never let go
    When we're feeling poor
    I'll help you recover
    When we laugh away
    I'll give you a smile
    When we shed a tear
    I'll comfort you gently and

    Our love will sing loud and strong
    Our love will keep going on

    When you don't know take my word
    I am here to stay with you, cause
    We will be better when we are together and
    We are united in love

    We are united in love
    United we love

    If Harvey Milk was alive today, he would be embarrased. People took chances then, gays today do not. Wimps.

    Equality for gays will come from the 3% of gays that actually fight for them. The rest will just enjoy the rights that those 3% got for them. And they will act as if they earned them.
