Things are developing fast and furious: I spent most of the afternoon talking to the media and trying to get the word out. What we really need for the rally is a keynote speaker. Ideally, someone meeting the following criteria:
1. Portland resident
2. Public figure
3. Sam supportive
It's been difficult finding people willing to speak; the reaction to this issue has been unpredictable, even (especially!) among the GLBT community. Also, since it's apparently a "sex scandal", public figures don't want to get near it with a ten foot pole. I know they're out there, but being as I don't have a lot of contact with folks everybody knows, I'm sort of hard-pressed to locate anyone willing.
If you or someone you know would be willing to holler into a megaphone in downtown Portland tomorrow night in favor of our current mayor, please let me know ASAP.
One more phone interview and then I'm off to Roots Brewing to make signs and talk to KATU. Hope to see you there!
