LA: Gays Will Protest Obama Tonight
The Courage Campaign and a coalition of other progressive groups will protest Barack Obama's continuing silence on marriage equality when he appears at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser dinner tonight at the Beverly Hills Hilton.
President Barack Obama, the most LGBT-friendly president in history, will be at the Beverly Hilton the evening of Wednesday, May 27th, for a DNC fundraiser. Let's take this opportunity, just one day after the CA Supreme Court makes its decision on Proposition 8, to show our President our support for his daring promise to our community and to highlight the growing movement towards FULL FEDERAL EQUALITY. Join us at a rally at 6PM in front of the Beverly Hilton on Wednesday, May 27th. At 7PM we will be joined by Lt. Dan Choi and other LGBT servicemen & women in opposition to Don't Ask Don't Tell. They will ask for response from President Obama to the letter signed by 136,000 people asking the president not to fire Lt. Choi by ending DADT. Regardless of what decision comes down regarding Prop 8 it is time for us all to demand equality on all fronts for all people!
