Watching this video recap of the protest is heartening. The strength of this video is twofold. There is the conviction expressed by the protesters who have my admiration, but there is also the resounding sadness in the faces of the bureaucrats and police who seem to be discharging public responsibilities with which they do not personally agree. Gone are the smirks and sarcasm and disdain of previous decades. I think I see signs that in the heart of America, homophobia is withering and this battle is well on its way to being over.
