I don't encourage people to attend many events. However, after all the rants I have read on this site about the black gay community, I truly hope there will be a presence of people of color at the protests in NYC this week on Prop. 8. Many reasons why blacks associate gayness with whiteness is because many of us remain in the shadows waiting for white gays and transgenders to fight for us.

There will be two protests in NYC this week. Hopefully, LGBT and straight people can see beyond the smokescreen of race and realize this is a human issue. The discussion of racism is exactly what the ruling class wants. When honestly, white supremacists put niggers and faggots in the same category. Imagine how much power there would be if the LGBT and black community united?
Here is the information for the protest tomorrow:
Latter Day Saints (Mormon) Temple on Wednesday, November 12, beginning at 6 p.m.:
Protest at the Latter Day Saints (Mormon) Temple in ManhattanRemember, Mormons were pro-slavery and up until 1978 African-Americans were not welcomed to their church. Are we going to allow Mormons, thirty years later, to transfer their hate from one group to another?
125 Columbus Avenue at 65th Street
Wednesday, November 12
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Yes, the Mormons are about to hear it because not all gays are passing the buck to blacks. Nonetheless, it's long overdue for black to examine their homophobia regardless of Prop. 8.
There is a second protest at City Hall on Saturday, November 15, beginning at 1:30 p.m.
