Do It. Prop 8 Demonstration.

Earlier this month, same-sex couples (and supporters of marriage rights for everyone) celebrated when a federal judge struck down the ban on gay marriage. Unfortunately, the collective sigh of relief didn't last long, when a stay was placed on the ban. And now the wait is for the court of appeals to hear the case.

Tonight in West Hollywood gay rights activists are planning a demonstration (which is great, but honestly I hope it doesn't affect my evening commute home - there's been enough traffic this week with Obama's visit). The gathering will take place at Santa Monica Blvd. and San Vicente at 6:00 p.m.

The stay was originally supposed to be lifted Wednesday evening - so today West Hollywood officials had planned to wed gay couples.

Rather than a celebration, the fight for equality continues tonight.
