We show up in our goldenrod Standing on the Side of Love shirts, the crowd's words scripted to a few chants and songs. Each event has a named spokesperson to talk with the press and any officials.
For some, keeping to the proscribed role can sometimes be a challenge--many of us feel quite passionately about these issues and have personal stories to share. Then there are those of us who find it freeing--there's no pressure, and far less courage needed. It's just about being there, standing in silent (or singing) witness, loving the world.
