On a bitterly cold November 15th,  OneIowa put on a protest against proposition 8 and a rally for homosexual rights this Protests/rally was not only organized by OneIowa but was a nationwide string of protests, all on the same day.   At the protest/rally we heard from: the director of OneIowa (which bills itself as “the state’s largest LGBT advocacy organization” to quote from their website), State Sen. Matt McCoy Iowa’s only openly gay state legislator,   the director of PFLAG in Iowa I think, the UU pastor that married Iowa’s only legally married same- sex couple, that couple, and Ben Stone the director of the Iowa ACLU.  the press estimated there to be approximately 100 people at the event, however I felt there was closer to 200 people.

    It must have been inspiring to take part in this national protest, especially in a state that is so important for gay rights right now.
