B. PROP H8
In June, the California judiciary said we could get hitched and before we’d even paid off our wedding gowns, the state’s voters psyched us out by passing Proposition 8, overturning the newly-minted marriage-equality law. Largely supported by the deep pockets of the Church of Latter Day Saints, Prop 8 was a shocker for the gay community. But the wake-up call may have been just what we needed. After Prop 8 passed, gays filled the streets, spurring the largest nationwide protests our community had seen since the days of ACT UP.
