I suppose one thing to consider when thinking of Stonewall 2.0 sizzle or fizzle, is whether it is succeeding country-wide, or only in mostly LGBT-friendly enclaves where a good crowd can be amassed. Obviously you're going to see more people well-organized in NY, LA, San Francisco, etc. than you would, say, here in NC. So it's a matter of whether size and fervor is the sole determinant of success.
That said, the one that was planned for Raleigh had to be called off/rescheduled because the time and location conflicted with the inaugural celebration for the incoming governor Bev Purdue; the rally will certainly have a reduced turnout when it is rescheduled since it will no longer coincide with the national action. I don't know how many other planned JTI events weren't able to be pulled off on Sat. It's hard to say since there aren't reports out from places in the hinterlands where people need to see these sorts of demonstrations to show the visibility and importance of the issues at hand.
This Protest in Raleigh shouldn't have be cancel. Can you Imagine the type of press we would have gotten. Headlines, "As Perdue was being sworn in as the first Female Governor of NC , just blocks away there was a DOMA Protest."
Why can't we be just as Organized as NY, San Francisco, and LA?
Anyway, there was at once one DOMA Protest in NC on January 10th that was in Greenville, NC. This Protest was set up and Angie Williams, Nykole Hotaling, and Georgie Winfree, who is member of Someone's Sister. Though it was a small group that show up, they were there with their signs and a Gay Pride Flag. At this event there was at least one LGBT Family, Two fathers with thier Daughter and Son.
It seem to me that all we are doing is giving lip service. What will it take to get us moving again.
What will it take,
Another Matthew Shepard?
Another Anti-Gay Law to pass?
The LGBT Community in NC need a Damn Wake up call.
