Proposition 8 Play

Post  fantastica on 3/3/2012, 5:26 pm

don't forget tonight at 7pm PT (10pm ET) live stream of play "8": link and youtube link
the anti-gay groups don't want the trial records to go public because they said their witnesses will be harrassed. so the gay activists had a brilliant idea: turning the trial record into a play and broadcast it to the whole world! As a play it's "art" protected by the free speech clause of the constitution, so they can't shut them up. It would still be realistic because it's based on the actual transcript, except it's enacted by lots of famous actors (including our very own Chris Colfer!). the result will be milliion times better: instead of publishing long and boring transcript that most people won't bother reading, now they are doing a play full of famous actors, in a condensed version w/ highlights from the trial, that everybody can watch, for free, on YouTube!

So people, flood to your youtube link and watch it again and again. It's time to send them gay-bashers a strong message that we support equal rights for our gay sons and daughters and neighbors and friends!

For one minute of his life, I had Chris Colfer's attention. It was a great minute.

He plays a witness who testifies about him being sent to the corrective therapy by his parents as a teen, in order to "cure" his homosexuality. Consider the number of witnesses on that trial, his part is not big. Will probably last a couple of minutes at most. but so will other witness characters. the biggest parts are the lawyers on both sides and the judge, who will be speaking pretty much throughout the play.

I am sure Tumblr will snip Chris' part and put it in a seperate download for fan's enjoyment (not to mention screencaps and gifs and the kitchen sink).

“8” is a play about marriage equality. Chris is doing a reading of this play tonight in LA, along with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. You can watch it on the livestream link I just reblogged.
If I may, it’s way more than that. It is not a play with a script, but a staged reading of selections from the actual court transcripts of testimony made during the trial known as Perry v. Brown (formerly Perry v. Schwarzenegger), better known as the lawsuit that found Prop 8 to be unconstitutional.
The proceedings were recorded and were meant to be televised to all under a new system in place in the 9th Circuit. However, the opposition filed multiple motions to prevent the trial from being shown to the public (because they know they look like huge crazy assholes in court while our side is bad.ass.), and have managed thus far to keep them suppressed.
So, the staging of the transcripts is really a reclaiming of the public right to know, and the best “fuck you” we have for now to remind the other side that they can’t hide their hate and bigotry from the public eye.
Well said.

I just kicked my dinner guests out of the house at 9:30 so that I could be done cleaning up to watch the damn thing at 10:00, and now I have to wait another 40 minutes? LOL.

^ 40 minutes of deep meditation to calm yourself so you won't jump up screaming when you see Chris on the stage.

If you can swing it, I challenge everyone to donate $10 to the cause to support it for giving us this chance to watch the livestream! It's only a bit more than you'd spend on a movie ticket!

You can barely see Chris' glasses. He is wearing really thin wire frames.
