More Than 65 Gay Rights Protesters Demonstrate Again at Idaho's Capitol: VIDEO


Earlier this month 44 LGBT activists were arrested at Idaho's state capitol after they entered the Senate chamber and demanded inclusion in the state's anti-discrimination laws.

That hasn't slowed them down. Yesterday, at least 65 returned to the capitol and ringed the rotunda, KTVB reports:

Thursday's demonstration didn't include blocking entrances to lawmakers' chambers, the event that precipitated arrests Feb. 3. Idaho State Police troopers who guard the Capitol observed the silent protest -- the demonstrators covered their mouths with their hands -- but didn't intervene.

  2. are they "LGBT" activists or GAY activists?

    Seems a lot of people get called "LGBT" activists when they have nothing to do with Trans issues.

  4. @HomoGenius: The "four words" their signs refer to are "sexual orienation" and "gender identity." So they are advocating for gay and bi people with the former as well as trans and intersexed people with the latter.
    The reporter probably refers to them as gay rights advocates because anti-gay discrimination is the most common form of discrimination among sexual minorities, even if that against trans people is probably even more severe.
