This past Sunday was the annual Los Angeles AIDS Walk. This was the first year I've done the walk and haven't lived in Hollywood with easy access to event parking and let me just say that the hour long drive maneuvering around all the closed roads and detours was nothing short of frustrating.
After parking and starting the walk to the walk we passed this sign. Clearly written by someone with a fuzzy understanding of both the event and the English language.
Waiting for the walk to begin.
That's right...the number to call is 866-GODLESS.
The "holy rollers" like to set up camp at the intersection of Santa Monica and La Cienega with their messages of hate. Signs that read "Homo Sex is a Sin" and "Sodomy is Still Against God's Law" receive 'the finger' and a lot of boos from the passersby. It put a damper on that block of the walk until.....
A bus driver parked his bus right in front of the hate mongers. Cheers from the crowd!
The 6.2 mile route just happens to pass right in front of Chris and my favorite café Lulu's. So.....we took a slight detour. I'm only mostly sure this doesn't make us bad people...
Thank you to everyone who sponsored me and made such generous donations to AIDS Project Los Angeles. Together we were able to raise $600 to help fight AIDS. THANK YOU!!!!
