LGBT rights advocates, organized by Join the Impact, turned out in eight countries, 50 states, and 300 cities today in support of marriage equality, with thousands gathering across California to specifically protest the recent passage of Prop. 8. Signs read “Are you better off now that I can’t marry?” and “The same Bible was used to justify slavery,” referencing the ban’s heavy support from the Mormon church. Some pictures from today’s events:

Currently, just Massachusetts and Connecticut allow same-sex marriage; all 30 states that have voted on gay marriage have enacted bans. More photos from SFist, Pam’s House Blend, and Good As You.
