Prop 8 Protest in Silver Lake - Conflict with proponents of proposition 8 which denies marriage rights to gay and lesbian couples in California. Three guys with bullhorns and signs also attended the rally of over 20,000 people. Mounted police officers do a fantastic job of protecting the free speech right of both the marchers and the counter-protestors. Liquid is tossed towards the three "Yes on 8" men, while 3 more guardian angel nun-drag queens tell the crowd to move along and if you just ignore them, they'll go away. Scenes of the crowd passing by are not the same group over and over, I stayed in one place, and never really could show how many people were really there.
