Dozens Protest Proposition 8 In Louisville

Dozens of protesters gathered outside of City Hall in Louisville Saturday as part of a national day of protest against gay marriage bans.The movement was spurred by California’s recently passed ban, but rallies have been organized in all 50 states.Curtis Morrison organized the protest in Louisville. He says the push for equal rights goes beyond California.“We’ve bit our lip long enough, so this probably will be the birth of a new civil rights movement," he says. "It’ll go down in history.”Same-sex marriage and civil unions are not allowed in Kentucky. Other protests in the Commonwealth were held in Lexington and Berea.

Gabe Bullard is the director of news and editorial strategy.
