Shower Curtain Chronicles: Gay Marriage, Good For Families, Good For America

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

Gay Marriage, Good For Families, Good For America

This photo was taken on Monday, Sept. 18 while we were freeway blogging over 94 near Snelling. It received many horn honks in the hour or so we had it up. The first time we used this banner was late last winter. It was cold and we were on the grass at the entrance to 394 near 12th St. in Minneapolis. We were maybe 30 feet from the cars so it was possible to see the expressions on people's faces. It was great to see the (presumably) gay and lesbian couples' faces light up when they read the banner and they would lay on the horn. That's one of the things that makes this type of endeavor worth while. You may not be changing a lot of people's minds by holding up a sign near the freeway, but I think it makes the other queers feel supported and maybe lifts their spirits a little as they're driving home from work.
I should mention that when we do this, we stay with the banner the whole time we're there and leave nothing behind when we're done.
