'hattan against H8in'
Last night in Manhattan, we East Coast gays rallied behind our Left Coast friends. Check out Joe.My.God and Blabbeando for nice photo/video coverage from the long distance Prop 8 protest:
NYC: Thousands Rally For Equality [J.M.G.]
My New York: Gotham City stands up for same-sex marriage tonight [Blabbeando]
Our favorite, most random part of the whole night? The show queen who, out of nowhere, bust out in an impromptu, gay-themed take on Hairspray's "Welcome to the '60s. Only in gay New York, kids; only in gay New York.
**SEE ALSO: Matthew Rettenmund has more, including photo and video with Whoopi Goldberg: The Marrying Kind [Boy Culture]
It was a wonderful night with thousands of friends and supporters and glad to have finally met Blabbeando's creator.
Also a wonderful full moon shone down upon us all....

Formal Complaint filed against the MORMON CHURCH:
Today we filed a formal complaint with the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) aka the Mormon Church of Salt Lake City, Utah for not reporting various non monetary contributions to ProtectMarriage.com – Yes on 8, A Project of California Renewal I.D. # 1302592. The Mormon Church has been highly secretive about its massive involvement in the campaign, but we managed to piece together evidence of some of their more visible activities done directly to communicate with California voters, including:
