Yesterday, at the Minnesota State Fair to appear on Doug Pagitt Radio, Doug, John “the Sidekick” Musick, and I strolled the fairgrounds. We passed a booth that I’d read about in the paper — it had been outside the fairgrounds in front of a local church, then somehow it got inside the grounds. There are a couple odd things about this: one is that it’s well known around here that it’s exceptionally difficult to get a booth at the Fair. Be it food or a cause, people are known to wait on lists for years to get a crack at the Fair. These folks seem to have made a call and gotten in with little trouble.Secondly, another group that represented the other side of this contentious issue had asked in the early summer about getting a booth and had been told there was no room this year.
The group that got in is against gay marriage and collecting signatures for our upcoming marriage amendment in Minnesota.
The group that didn’t get in is for marriage equality and against the constitutional amendment.
So, the latter group undertook a bit of non-violent resistance yesterday, glitter bombing the booth of the former group from the Sky Glider ride overhead while shouting, “Where’s our booth?!?”
