The Prop 8 Trial Transcripts.

Though I've been focused on Zero Hour and making music here in New York, back in California, a little trial has been happening. Several sites have been keeping track. The one that's the most fun is Prop 8 Trial Tracker. They live blog the events, complete with comment section. Also, they appropriated the No on 8 logo as a parody, thus prompting a lawsuit, which has given them even more publicity.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights is providing transcripts.

Yesterday, a boy testified about how his family forced him into "exgay" therapy in order to ungay him. And, as every professional psychological and psychiatric group will tell you, this is more than harmful, leading to severe depression and even suicide. Happily, he survived, but there are many more who do not.
