Shower Curtain Chronicles: December 2008

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.

Marriage Equality Bill Gathers Momentum

The Marriage and Family Protection Act, the first marriage equality bill ever introduced in the Minnesota legislature is making a return run in 2009. Once again, we are fortunate to have Senator John Marty and Representative Phyllis Kahn carrying the bill. The bill has to be reintroduced this session because it is the first year of the biennium. I have been at the Capitol seeking co-sponsors since the bill came back from the Revisor earlier this month. It has been difficult finding people at the Capitol because it's an off time but so far we have 3 senators signed on, out of a possible 5, and 10 representatives. Among those signed on are, Senator Scott Dibble and Representative Karen Clark. There are more people who have pledged to sign on that I just haven't run into yet. I will keep at it.
