Those past couple of days have been like an emotional roller coster for us. The move from Paris, our new life in California, the election of Barack Obama, and sadly … the Proposition 8! Tonight a protest rally was organized in West Hollywood. As soon as we have heard we did our best to bring as many people as we could. Right now we are not sure how many took part in this protest but it was a LOT!
The rally took place on San Vicente Blvd. between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Blvd. but it was quickly divided in groups of people who went in different directions, Beverly Hills, Hollywood … the marches trough the streets of Los Angeles lasted more than 3 hours.
Like I have said it was crazy, we did not planned to block the streets but it just happened and watch below how it felt as an insider …
Tomorrow another rally is set to take place in Los Angeles at 2pm right in front of the … Mormon church! Members of the Mormon church from around the country have funneled $22 million into the state of California in order to revoke the existing right of gay and lesbian families to marry.
I believe that if churches wants to be involved in politics they should simply lose their tax exempt status! The economy could always use some extra cash right !? and obviously the mormon church has a lot of extra cash to spend on things like taking away people’s rights … Something to think of Mr President!
UPDATE: Lance Bass who was heading west on Sunset Boulevard last night had a little and friendly encounter with the prop 8 march.
Police officer Jason Lee says marchers were mostly peaceful but four people were taken into custody at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland when they tried to cross a line of officers [Sign on San Diego]
