Shower Curtain Chronicles: Minnesota Human Rights Conference Demonstration

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.

Minnesota Human Rights Conference Demonstration

First, I want to acknowledge World Aids Day and the importance of this annual observance. I remember those who have passed from my life.

It is also Human Rights Day in Minnesota which presented an opportunity to bring an equal marriage message to those in this state that are concerned with human rights. So, I bundled up this morning and unfurled my cold, crackly shower curtain at the parking ramp entrance of the River Center in St. Paul. The annual Human Rights Conference is taking place there with speakers such as Arne Carlson and Dr. Mary Frances Berry. I got set up in time to catch the attendees streaming into the parking ramp for the 8:oo AM registration.

My goal was to convey a message to those who shape the human rights world in this state that the need for people to be able marry their same sex life partner and have that marriage treated with equality and respect by the government is also a human right. The response was generally positive, except for that one guy.

Sorry about the sound quality.
