Gay Activists Unite California (Audio)

Produced by Charlotte Robinson

In the first installment of this two part audio interview, Charlotte Robinson talks to Robin McGehee, Lead Organizer of Meet in the Middle 4 Equality, a California LGBT organization, about their rally scheduled for the first Saturday after the California Supreme Court issues its ruling on the Proposition 8 cases, win or lose. In this statewide response to the California Supreme Court’s decision on Proposition 8, the measure which bans gay marriage in the State, LGBT activists from across California will “meet in the middle” by journeying to Fresno to march & rally for LGBT equality. Californians statewide will come together in unity for freedom. The march which begins in Selma, California is organized by McGehee, a Fresno-based Lesbian mother who was forced out of her position as PTO president after speaking out against Proposition 8, & joined by a coalition of more than 50 organizations representing the LGBT, faith, labor & progressive communities, including Courage Campaign, California Faith for Equality, FAIR, Equal Roots, Equality Action Now, Equality California, Gay Straight Alliance Network, Honor PAC, Jordan Rustin Coalition, Marriage Equality USA, One Struggle One Fight, San Diego Equality Coalition, SF Pride, Unite Here & others. From every corner of the state, every California county will be represented as they stand for fair & equal treatment for LGBT citizens.
