On Saturday, February 21, 2015, about 150 people showed up to protest against gay marriage at the Alabama State Capitol.
Being the activist that I am, I couldn’t resist the chance to peacefully counter protest & show the local LGBT community that they had support. Of course, it made the local paper.
I will say there was one thing I was surprised by at the rally: the amount of white supremacist/neo-confederate people that were there. With all the hateful rhetoric from some Alabama politicians, I am very afraid for the LGBT community (and their supporters). But I will not stop, and I will not be scared. Besides, I like making snarky signs too much. 😉
