Rallying the crowds
One such state was California, which had Proposition 8 on the ballot. This initiative amended the state Constitution to define marriage as being between a man and a woman, thus rendering gay marriage illegal. Prop 8 was a response to the California Supreme Court’s May ruling that overturned a previous gay marriage ban.
With such controversy over the issue, it was no surprise to see so many people making their voices heard via Prop 8 t-shirts and other merchandise. On November 15th, a series of anti-Prop 8 rallies took place throughout California. So we went out to the San Francisco rally in search of folks making their voices heard not just with their chants, but with their shirts, signs and other accessories as well.
