Thank you for finding this image. I work in a disabled veterans’ facility, but we rarely see memorials for gay vets. Often it is forgotten that who you love at home has no bearing on how you love your country or your people.
Very cool picture Ron. I only hope that within the next decade California will finally get it right and move to make gay marriage legal again. Who would have ever thought Iowa was the more progressive state of the two!

You’re overlooking two things. California is only liberal in the cities. Overall, California is a red state. Secondly, the majority of the Yes on 8 money came from outside the state, specifically the Catholics, Mormons, and Protestant fundies.
Those groups couldn’t afford to let California legalize gay marriage. It would have created a tidal wave of momentum that they wouldn’t be able to stop. What they overlooked is that the momentum is there anyway. It’s just going to happen a bit slower than it would have if California had legalized it.
Blueness in all states is largely urban-driven. California is no more “overall” a red state than any other state. Well, that’s not true — it may be moreso than other states, but I’m being hyperbolic here to make a point. I learned it by watching fundies!
