At last night’s Maine response rally in NYC’s Union Square, rainbow flag creator Gilbert Baker said to me, “Where’s the ANGER? Where are the pitchforks?” as he surveyed the glum crowd. I told him his opinion reflected much of what you folks here were saying yesterday. From the bullhorn came the usual speechifying to the usual audience of activist regulars. NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn urged the crowd to continue to pressure NY’s state senators, as did Marriage Equality NY head Cathy Marino-Thomas.
Here’s a report from the rally by Our Scene TV reporter Blake Hayes.
