We Should Just Change Minnesota To "The Glitter State"

The glitter continues to fall in Minnesota this past weekend, as pro-marriage equality advocates showered an anti-equality booth at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul.

Why was this booth singled out for the "glitter from the heavens" miracle?  The fair allowed the anti-equality activists space for their bigotry, while excluding same-sex advocates from having a booth at the celebration.
"As LGBT people are excluded from basic rights like marriage, the voices of marriage equality activists in Minnesota were excluded from having a booth at the Minnesota state fair," said participant Joanna Hirvela, "but we will not be silenced. Wherever there is bigotry, let there be glitter."
