There were approximately 3500 people at the marriage equality rally in Phoenix yesterday. And anyone who's done their share of protesting in Arizona can attest that it's amazing to get 100 people to show up for anything, let alone 1000. But 3500 is unheard of!
The crowd marched from Phoenix City Hall to the State Capitol building chanting, "Hey hey, ho ho, homophobia has got to go," with the occasional "el pueblo, unida, james sera vencido" thrown in for good measure. It was really exhilarating to see so many people in Phoenix turn out for LGBTQ equality.
I've got some great pictures after the jump.
