The Story Behind the Banner: #1

I took the photo that became this banner at the first NYC protest against the passage of Proposition 8 (November 12, 2008). We gathered at the Mormon Temple on 65th and Columbus, but there were so many thousands of people that it became a march down to Columbus Circle, which is where I got this shot. There was a kind of buzz and positive energy in the air that night; it was the first time in my life that I got to participate in a mass gay protest, and I'll never forget that feeling. Vive la resistance.
