As the countdown to election day ticks on, activists have been mobilizing in an effort to ensure protection and progress of and towards marriage equality. Lest progressives sit back this election thinking its in the bag, remember how Prop 8 went down on election day? Remember how the Mormon Church had mobilized members against marriage equality?
What's at stake seems pretty clear.
Freedom to Love Now! along with partners with Marriage Equality USA and Freedom To Marry, as well as others have initiated a live concert to raise money and awareness for marriage equality in all 50 states. On October 30th, at the Beacon Theater in New York, Artists: Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Beth Orton, Sam Amidon, Cibo Matto, Rufus Wainwright, fun., The National, Toshi Reagon, They Might Be Giants, John Cameron Mitchell with Stephen Trask, Justin Vivian Bond, (and it appears the lineup is continuing to grow.) are gathering for an all out conscious raising fight for equality.
Tickets available now.
