Tampa is the only Florida stop in a national tour by the rabidly anti-gay group,the National Organization for Marriage.
So far, their rallies have provoked over the top hate speech including a poster with two nooses implying gay people should be murdered rather than married.
A coalition of pro-equality community organizations have planned an event as a counterpoint to this attack on gay people called "Celebrate Our Families."
It's going to be a fantastic family-friendly event. We have planned for a picnic as well as a premiere sneak preview screening of "In Anita's Wake" a look at Florida's notorious anti-gay adoption law (see details below). I hope that you can join us.
