A handful of Atlanta LGBT activists celebrated the Prop 8 decision in a California court by taking to a corner in Midtown to wave flags, shake posters and prod supportive motorists to honk.
Members of the Queer Justice League and Atlanta Sisters gathered at the corner of 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue on Tuesday to cheer on the decision, which upheld a lower court’s ruling that struck down California’s gay marriage ban. But they still can’t get gay married in California or Georgia. Gay marriages are on hold in California for a possible appeal of the decision and same-sex unions have been banned in Georgia – twice.
QJL is among several LGBT groups planning a Feb. 18 protest of an “ex-gay” event in Villa Rica.
