  1. Thanks for this peek inside that day right in the heart of San Francisco.
    Inspiring in spite of the defeat.
    Educational and excellent framing lesson for another fight for equality….the basic rights to have a natural, complete access to a language designed for us, Deaf people.
    We are gonna experience more defeats before we will start seeing victories…on both issuses.
    We gotta support each other in both!
    again thanks.

  2. Deaf Queer,

    Great video posting of the Calforina GLBT communty’s reaction to the recent state court decision on the implention of the Prop. 8 intitative.

    That would be real nice if you post the name below individual sign before the camera. It is a necessity for historical purpose. Thanks.

  3. Deaf Queer,

    Why my comment get deleted. Nothing offensive or degrading within my comment.

    I really could not believe when you delete my comment without any good reason.

  4. This is a great video! It made me feel like I was there. Thank you so much for doing it. I’m so bummed out about the Court’s decision but like one person said, I still have hope for the future.

  5. I like what the interpreter woman said about us all making a difference together.  I do not live in California but hope that you will be able to repeal that dumb law.  If not, you can always move to Iowa.
