Are you going to sell them in front of the Basilica Block Party this year?

Michael J. Bayly said...

As a non-profit, we can't sell the buttons, only ask for a donation. And, yes, we'll definitely be at the Basilica Block Party, as we were last year!

I just want to say that your presence as a group gives me hope. I came out in Kansas 13 years ago, and watched the anti-marriage amendment pass there. There was never a group like yours in Kansas. I moved here 3 years ago from Kansas for law school but also because I heard that Minnesota was very welcoming of gay people. The support for the gay community here is very much appreciated.

Mark said...

Have to say I'm not much of a Catholic but I support you for your stand. Wish more were like you.

We will defeat the Marriage Amendment! Thank you, C4ME-MN.
