"Day Without a Gay" in Eau Claire
The Spectator, UW-Eau Claire's student paper, ran an article today about local participation in yesterday's A Day Without a Gay. The national event called for LGBT people and their allies to boycott work, school and the economy for the day, focusing their energy instead on volunteerism that supports the LGBT community. The idea was to show how important gays are to society and the economy. But it appears that the event had few active participants in Eau Claire, San Franciso or elsewhere.
