When: Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008, 6:00 P.M.
Where: 24th and Mission St., San Francisco, CA [BART: 24th & Mission]
How: RSVP to the Facebook event at Day Without A Gay – San Francisco. And please pass this message to everyone!
Why: To show support for American civil rights and equality for all, including gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals, queers, and intersexuals. Our intent is to show everyone else that this movement is not a flash in the pan. The 21st century Civil Rights Movement is not going to disappear. Victims of discrimination are not going to quietly and passively wait for
our rights. And our communities will never forget Prop. 8 and the constant hatred that people face simply for living in a sexist, paranoid world.
Demonstrations show politicians, the media, and society at large that there is widespread, powerful, and vocal support for civil rights. Demonstrations bring us together as a community and show that both GLBTQI and their straight friends are united in this fight. Wednesday, Dec. 10 is the next big protest – it is time for everyone to gear up, make your signs, and come with enthusiasm and all the courage of your convictions!
