Windy City Times: A Closer Look At Prop 8 DonorsMarch 2, 2009
“In the coming weeks, there will be more articles on those who contributed for and against Prop 8.” That is how this week’s piece by Yasmin Nair, writing for the Windy City Times, finishes her article called “Prop 8 Donors: A Closer Look.” Since the passage of Prop 8 and the advent of eightmaps.com, the flurry of gay fury that has swept our community has not ended, nor should it. Nair’s article, naming names on both sides of the contribution lists, is really digging, and it looks like we are going to get personal here in Chicago. My last post about this got TPR called “fascist” in the comments and I hope that as the people who donated $$ for Prop 8 get shamed and exposed in their communities, people will think twice before contributing to hate. On the flip, I hope that people who donated against Prop 8 get the honor and credit that they deserve.
