ANSWER rally saved by Gay and Lesbian community leaders

by No Discrimination Monday, Nov. 10, 2008 at 3:45 AM

The supposed ANSWER LA Silverlake rally was a mess thanks to ANSWER fortunately for the marchers and all of us there our own Gay and Lesbian community leaders stepped up and saved the day

ANSWER LA tried to lead this Silverlake rally on Sat Nov 8. They were so unorganized and weird that they had the whole group asking what the hell was happening. They were yelling at us and telling one group to go one way and another to go the other way. They tried to force a bunch of people in front of us into a LAPD line when the LAPD were clearly trying to work WITH us and make our march a peaceful and successful protest. When the ANSWER people nearly completely blew it at Sunset and Vermont thankfully some guys from the Gay community stepped in and helped us all out. They talked with LAPD and because ANSWER had already messed the whole thing up they decided to have us regroup back at the Junction and then march west which is what a bunch of us were trying to do. If you want something done right get a Gay man to do it not these ANSWER fools. I'm looking forward to continuing this long fight and I think in the end if we can keep the marches peaceful that the people out there will be on our side. The LAPD really gets a bad rap. They were amazing. They had some rules we couldn't break but for the most part they went along with what our Gay leaders wanted and that made the crowd happy. Let's keep up the pressure and send a clear message that we will win this war without violence and finally be treated equally.
