In further related news, the Chicago GLBT Pride parade this past Sunday was a huge success, despite vandalism of 51 floats the night before. I hope the vandals will be found and further hope these vandals will be charged with a hate crime.
Still, the combination of the two events was a huge victory over fear. Think about it:
- The 13th Amendment outlawing slavery was passed in 1864. Brown Vs. Board was decided in May, 1954. Still, 1n 1957 the Arkansas Governor ordered State Troopers to defend segregationists and block access to a public high school.
- Roe v. Wade was decided January, 1973. To this day, anti-choice legislation and violence are abundant in the USA.
