First Honk Against H8 Events

The first series of Honk Against H8 events were loud and boisterous in NYC, Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Thank you everyone who joined in and made noise for equality.

Good news! Yesterday, the CA Supreme Court agreed to hear opposition arguments on Prop 8. That means our work is just beginning. We will continue to rally with other groups to combine forces and keep the protests going.

We have set a second Honk Against H8 Day - December 17 at 5:08PM-5:16PM. These 8 minutes are an important display of unity. Stay tuned in the next few days for more updates.

People around the world...
Whether in a car, house, walking, or anywhere make some noise from 5:08PM until 5:16PM in your timezone. Try to video everything with your cell phones or cameras and upload! Get them online the day of the protest quickly so we can see the noise coming around the world.

If driving in a car:
  • put your hazards on and
  • blast that horn for 8 minutes!
If you're parked with your car:
  • sit down in it and blast that horn or
  • turn your car alarm on for 8 minutes
If you're walking:
  • stop then
  • scream for 8 minutes;
  • or stand completely still
  • make sign (look for downloads this weekend)
If you're home:
  • go outside bang some pots and pans for 8 minutes or
  • blast some music
  • but just make lots of noise
