ANNIE ON OFFENSE

In the wake of the passage of Prop 102 in Arizona, Phoenix activist Annie Loyd has helped organize several successful demonstrations in reaction to the anti-gay prop.

First, there was a march on November 15 that drew thousands in downtown Phoenix. Then a 1,000-person demo in Glendale, which was initially organized to counter a planned protest by Kansas gay-hater Fred Phelps' virulently homophobic Westboro Baptist Church but turned into a sort of pro-gay marriage, gay rights love-in when WBC didn't show. And, finally, a candlelight vigil across from the Mormon Arizona Temple in Mesa, on the night the temple's popular Christmas light display opened.

"Today is a new day," Loyd told The Bird recently. "It's about the people, not the politicians."

 

"Ultimately we will be judged by the extent of our humanity - let us not fall prey to the mob mentality of fear and oppression." ~ Annie Loyd
