Here's a Valentine's Day reminder that in New York and most of America, not all couples are treated equal under the law.



On Friday Feb 12th and Saturday Feb 13th 2010, couples and friends supporting equal rights for all, about 30 activists in total, staged a peaceful demonstration at two malls in the Albany, NY area. We printed tshirts with hearts asking, "Do you see my love," on the back, and wore them under our jackets. At an appointed time, we all took off our jackets and hugged our partners (or trios, or families). Singles and straight allies paired up for pretend. We held our synchronized hug for two minutes.

We made the lead story on WTEN at 11
