This photo essay chronicles the action taken by the LGBT community in Chicago after the passing of Proposition 8 in California which re-banned gay marriage in that state. The change in California's state laws is a backward step in the struggle for civil rights. This decision not only nullifies that state's previous laws, but takes a stab at all Civil Rights legislation that has tried to ensure equal rights to all people in the United States. I hope that my images personalize this 21st century struggle for equality and serve as a testament to all people who have fought in the past and are currently fighting for their Civil Rights. It is time to join this movement and take action. Information will be provided at the show on who to contact to get involved in this struggle. The time is now.
