WE DON’T LIVE IN YOUR SHADOW WE GROW IN YOUR SHADE, Civic Center, San Francisco, CA, March 5, 2009. Â (From the LD archives).
This was outside the California Supreme Court on the morning arguments were heard in the case challenging Proposition 8’s constitutionality. Reader and online comrade BeethovenLives reminded me of this image, for which reminder (and much more) I’m exceedingly grateful. Â The post it came from was this one: “A hastily compiled photo essay of the Prop 8 arguments, outdoor rabble version.”
I wish I could relay this young woman’s name. Â I asked her if I could take a picture of her holding her sign, and she was, as you can see, very proud. Â If you check out the post on the other end of that link, you’ll also see an image of the flip side of her sign. Â It read: “Please give my mom the right to watch her 4 out of 5 gay kids get married.”
That’s the younger generation right there, folks. Harvey’s kids.
