Proposition 8 Protest in San Francisco

Proposition 8 Protest

Photos were taken at a San Francisco protest against California's Prop 8 - on November 7, 2008. The rally began at Civic Center and moved up Market Street to the Castro and Dolores Park before returning to Civic Center.

What was originally anticipated as a gathering of hundreds, grew into a surge of thousands. The march brought traffic to a halt along the route, with a number of motorists cheering on protesters as the rally passed by the parked lines of cars.

Proposition 8 passed on the November 4, 2008 ballot -- amending the California Constitution and rescinding the right of gay couples to marry in the state.

For some black and white 35mm images of the rally, check out Christopher Layne's photos at Flickr.
