Prop 8 Decision Possibly not Tomorrow

Guest Post by Shaker Faith

EDITED TO ADD - The rulings will not come down tomorrow despite barricades appearing in L.A., San Diego and San Francisco in the queer neighborhoods. According to the CA Supreme Court site no rulings will be issued tomorrow.

Barricades have been delivered to areas in San Francisco around the Castro and near the Supreme Court building. It is likely that the word will come down tomorrow.

Tomorrow is also the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots in San Francisco which occurred after Dan White was given the most lenient sentence possible after murdering Harvey Milk and Mayor Moscone.

In addition, Friday would have been Harvey's 79th birthday.

I hope the Supremes knew the significance of this date and that is some sort of sign but we won't know anything until Thursday. In the meantime, there are rallies planned for the day of decision around the country as well as around the state.
