Lesbian & Gay Marriages Honored at Mountain View City Hall
by Prop 8 Protest
Sunday Nov 16th, 2008 11:36 PM
Part street theater, part ceremony of recognition, these protesters on the San Francisco peninsula said it in drama, song and signs:

*Will Your Marriage be Next?*
*Protect Us from Tyranny of the Majority*
*If anyone has reason why these two should not be wed...move back to Utah!*
