Protest Prop 8 with SheWired: Live Streaming Today from Meet in the Middle!
SheWired was on the front lines of the Prop. 8 protests, marches and demonstrations back in November and now we're bringing them to you with Live Streaming. On May 30th, the 1st Saturday after the California Supreme Court upheld Prop 8, a statewide and national effort toward full federal equality for gay and lesbian couples kicks off in Fresno with the 'Meet in the Middle' rally. Join SheWired here for live, queer coverage of the historic event featuring star power from Charlize Theron, Eric McCormack, Cleve Jones and Dustin Lance Black.
SheWired was on the front lines of the Prop. 8 protests, marches and demonstrations back in November and now we're bringing them to you with Live Streaming. Join us for continuous streaming of Meet in the Middle on Saturday May 30. SheWired is in the fight and we want you to be there too.
If you missed any of the live streaming from the Los Angeles rallies or any of the celebrity interviews we got there, the videos are below. Keep checking back today for video interviews with Boo and all the talent that came to Fresno to support equality. Enjoy the streaming video (start time: 12:00 pm Pacific).
(I have to give a little disclaimer: Thursday night there was a lightening storm in Fresno, which of course struck the main system for the only internet provider for downtown Fresno. As of Friday night, we thought that we were not going to be able to bring you a live broadcast at all. However, between Philip Minton from Unite the Fight and myself, we worked it out! The connection is just short of what is needed, so if we have any technical difficulties, I give my apologies in advance, and appreciate your patience.) Thanks!
On May 30th, the 1st Saturday after the California Supreme Court upheld Prop 8, a statewide and national effort toward full federal equality kicks off in Fresno with the Meet in the Middle rally.
SheWired will be in Fresno for the historic event, and we will be broadcasting live video throughout the event for anyone who can't make it. On the Saturday of the event, there is a march from Selma, CA to Fresno, CA (17 miles) that ends on the steps of Fresno City Hall around 1:00 pm.
At 1:00 pm everyone gathered -- and viewing live on SheWired -- will hear from celebrities and community leaders all showing their support and fighting for equality. Along with all the live coverage, we will also have video interviews and photo coverage being posted during the rally. There will also be after-party celebrations around Fresno with SheWired VIP rooms which we will also broadcast live!
