Shower Curtain Chronicles: Monday 4/27's Protest

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.

Monday 4/27's Protest

Yesterday, I was joined at the Capitol by a living monument to gay rights activism in Minnesota, Robert Halfhill. He was an organizer of the first gay rights organizations in Minnesota back in the 1960s and has been a vigorous and tireless activist ever since. His sign drew many nods of agreement.

We protested at the Senate first, until the doors closed. While there, I had a brief conversation with Sen. Moua and expressed our desire to see a hearing on the Marriage and Family Protection Act before the session ends. Something might happen.

On the House side, we were joined by about thirty other protesters. Most of them were the disability funding advocates but some were Welfare Rights Committee folks. They're all getting screwed in this budget.
