Outted To Lunch By Proposition 8: “Fancy A Shag?”

by | 10th, December 2008

THE GAY the Day stood still:.

Angered by the passage of a law banning same-sex marriage, gay rights activists are urging people to call in “gay” across the United States and skip work on Wednesday.

They also want people to buy nothing, to show off the economic muscle of the gay community, and spend the day doing volunteer work instead.

“Day Without a Gay,” modelled after the 2006 immigrants rights protests that swept from California to Texas, is intended to show how important gays and lesbians are to the US economy.

How gay is that:

The move is a reaction to California voters’ passage of Proposition 8 that bans gay marriage — which had been legal in the state since June.

Similar propositions also passed November 4 in Florida, Arizona and Arkansas, states where gay marriage was not legal.

Outted to lunch – hey, anyone seen [insert married man’s name here]… And doesn’t Proposition 8 sound so very seedy? What’s the first proposition – “Fancy a shag?”
