Calling in gay today?
Today is national "Day Without a Gay
" where members of the community are planning to "call in gay" to work to show the importance of gay and lesbian members of the community to the local economy.
The day-long protest is part of the ongoing fight against the passage of Prop 8 in California that bans gay marriage. The event has receivedsome criticism
for pulling workers out of a struggling economy as a form of protest. But the GLBT community has pushed on and will continue as planned.
