When I got inside, the hall in front of the House was full of queers waiting for their representatives to come out of the chamber to meet with their groups. The "GAY MARRIAGE IN MINNESOTA IN 2008" shower curtain was well received. There were also Outfront staff (or volunteers) stickering lawmakers as they passed. Even some Republicans accepted and wore the stickers.
I was happy to run into my old friend, Pete Golden at the rally. He came down from Duluth on a chartered bus. There were about as many people at the rally as there were last year. We listened and applauded the speakers. Senator Marty was not asked to speak this year...no surprise there I guess. He might have mentioned the gay marriage bill he's introducing.
