Shower Curtain Chronicles: Demanding A Marriage License

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.

Demanding A Marriage License

This was the scene yesterday, Valentine's Day, as Duane and I attempted to apply for a marriage license at the Hennepin County Government Center. Another couple, our friends Matt and Adi did the same. The video ends when I ask to speak with the clerk's supervisor.

The clerk was very professional and civil but tried to get rid of us by sending us to the "big letter C" somewhere. I'm pretty sure different sex couples don't get sent to the "big letter C." I tried to make this point with him later but he didn't want to hear about it and anyway the point of whole thing is that we demanded our rights from the government and that's always the first step toward equality. You live as a free person would live and in the process create that reality.

We didn't see the supervisor but we did leave with applications.

Thanks to Matt for running the camera.
