I think that it is important to note that even though this amendment passed, those of us fighting for LGBT equality aren't going away. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I have 5000 words on the eastern North Carolina experience that you might want to see, if you'll kindly follow me below the fold.
Special thanks to Amanda and Thomas for their work organizing this anti-amendment rally in Greenville today!
Council member Blackburn (on the stairs) spoke at the event. Council member Mitchell (in the red shirt) was also in attendance.
Many local activists and students were present and speaking too!
Greenville's council passed a resolution against amendment one. If you look at the precinct level maps you'll also see Greenville's citizens voted against amendment one as well. And today, students who are often written off after the semester is over gathered in a region of the state that is often written off to say we're here, we're still fighting for equality, and we're not going away.
