Say it with music

A friend from the London Gay Men's Chorus sent me some links and a few words about their protest yesterday in support of gay marriage. They were right outside the House of Lords.

"It was a great day! Apparently our singing could be heard inside the chamber where the Lords were debating the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill. We made it on to the BBC News at 10pm. Several speakers commented on ours being the best demonstration they had witnessed outside the Houses of Parliament. In the morning we were outnumbered by a vocal and angry Christian group, but they left in the early afternoon leaving the space for us, supported by Stonewall, Peter Tatchell’s group etc. I hope we made a difference. The speakers thought we did."
