Protest National Organization for Marriage Coming to Madison

If you follow us on Facebook, you may have already seen that several folks have been talking about being present when the inaptly named National Organization for Marriage, which is against marriage equality for committed adult couples, comes to Madison on July 27. The plans are coming together. Here's an email we received today from organizers:
Protest the Anti-LGBT National Organization for Marriage in Madison!
Demand Full Equality for all LGBT people in Wisconsin and the United States!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Meet on Library Mall at the UW campus on July 27th at 11:00am

March begins at 11:30am to meet them at the Capitol when they get there at 12:00pm

The right wing anti-gay marriage NOM is doing a national bus tour this summer to promote so called "Traditional Marriage". As outrageous as this sounds, they have decided to come to Madison WI to spread their hatred of LGBT people on July 27th. This is a slap in the face to everyone who supports equality in Wisconsin, especially after the recent court decision to uphold the discriminatory marriage ban.

We are having a protest organizing meeting on July 10th at 10am at Michelangelo's Coffee Shop on State St to help build the protest. Hope to see you there.

Here is the Facebook event for the protest and the organizing meeting. Invite all you equality supporting friends!


And on an unrelated note, sorry it's been so long since our last post. The show has still been going strong - it's just that our Web maven has been overwhelmed for the past few months with a job change. (Like all the programmers at WORT, our Web maven is a volunteer and has work outside of Queery, alas.) We're hoping to get back to more regular posting so you can know what's going on in our community between shows, get more information on subjects we cover on air, and learn what topics we'll be covering. For example, we're already looking forward to next week's show, which will include a preview of The Game Show Show from WhoopDeDoo Productions and queer theater group StageQ.
