I love this! Yay SF!

Great reminder that straight allies need to be OUT as such. There are more of us! We must be visible and accessible.

Wow! I teared up on this one.
The best part was seeing the chanting crowd. What better way to send the message, "You're not alone."

1982: My first month living in San Francisco, riding on a bus, some snotty teenager made some nasty homophobic loud-mouthed cracks. Several grownups stood up to dress him down. Besides different variations of "shame on you" I remember one man saying, "Listen up! This in SAN FRANCISCO and we don't talk like that in SAN FRANCISCO!"

Sometimes I am so proud of my new hometown!

I love San Francisco.

Many years ago I was drunkenly staggering around the Castro Halloween party, back before it was overrun with thugs and subsequently shut down. At one point, some belligerent out-of-towner started shouting that "some faggot" had grabbed his ass. Everyone else pointed at him and laughed. Loudly.

That gap-toothed gal in the cape is a superstar! After seeing Matt's teaser on this I'm surprised it turned out to be a PSA, with some of them reading from the same script - and I was NOT expecting a bouncy ad-music track...I don't care, I love how he looks deeeep into the camera while shaking his head around.

I wouldn't expect less from my former hometown :-)

This one really got me. I'm gonna have to hide in my office until my tears recede. I am so glad this is happening.
