It can't be denied a lot has been happening here in California since Prop 8 passed. However, there's been a disconnect between a lot of the major cities. Not that we haven't wanted to communicate and coordinate, it's just been, "How?"We've slowly cleared this hurdle and are now all determined to converge, literally, but outside our city limits. Where? In Fresno, CA of course!Many have asked, "Why?" Natural follow up question. In my post The Movement is Headed to Fresno, CA, I explain how I feel that members of the LGBT community in CA's major cities have faulted in not looking passed our own noses, let alone our cities. Fresno was a victim of that, especially during the No on 8 campaign. We intend to amend that.I really hope to see many of you there for Meet in the Middle. It's going to be big! Hopefully historic.
Grr. I keep messing up. So sorry. Here are the posts I referred to: The Movement is Headed to Fresno, CA and Meet in the Middle.
For some reason I'm just now feeling the black history month spirit and wrote a post about erasure of LGBT history in the black community. Still working on it if anyone wants to give feedback.

PROP 8 Alert!"Decision Day" Protest or CelebrationThere is a plan for a march and rally on DECISION DAY that is being talked and spread to other cities. Because the decision comes out during the week, can be almost any day now, and would be hard to reserve the protest site or celebration site for everyday, it looks like it will be a last minute announcement.I hear the frustration in one of the previous comments, "We don't know what's going on."WELL KEEP YOUR EAR OUT and check http://jointheimpact.com/ (and other sites)and follow the red link to CLICK HERE to FIND EVENTS in your city.and Check in with your local group. Make sure they are coordinating with other cities like San Diego and have a plan.Supreme court decisions usually come out on Monday or Thursday at 10AM (but could be any day). The supreme court announces that it will release a decision 24 hours before it does. AT THAT TIME, the night before, A RELEASE WILL BE MADE OF THE PLACE AND TIME.I personally will be taking fliers to bars and gay businesses to have them keep a heads up for the news and am going to call each when I hear the announcement. So, I am telling you to:-TALK TO SOMEONE in your city at a gay organization.-MAKE SURE YOUR CITY IS INVOLVED-CHECK jointheimpact.com-TELL FRIENDS and bars or gay businesses you go to TO KEEP AN EAR OUT and to tell people.-BE READY TO GO.Your city protest or celebration will be at one of the sites you have already marched from or to. If we win, then we will probably be out celebrating in our area of town and showing unity. If we lose, we will be out in their area and be protesting in unity.
ALSO:check http://www.dayofdecision.com/IF you scroll down there are event cities shown already with facebook links.Remember to check them and jointheimpact.com the night before for a time and place. REMEMBER it should be at a central place you have already met at before.
