Shower Curtain Chronicles: Wednesday LIVE From The Capitol

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.

Wednesday LIVE From The Capitol

Just finished up in front of the Senate with the "GAY FAMILIES DESERVE AND DEMAND EQUALITY" shower curtain. Some people thought it was a new one.

There were several school groups passing through this morning. In one group that passed in front of me on the Senate stairs, a girl quickly took out a sign she had made on 81/2 x 11 inch notebook paper. It had a big rainbow and bold lettering that read, "When Can We Get Married?. She was holding another girl's hand. This young girl had made a Marriage Equality protest sign in anticipation of her school's field trip to the Capitol so she could make an appeal to lawmakers for equality for her and her apparent partner. Wow! I asked her, as she continued walking and holding up her sign, if she'd made that sign to display here today and she nodded, shyly, without looking up. I told her, "GOOD FOR YOU! Good good!" It's the most touching thing I've ever seen here.
