[1]San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, who made a bold choice to legalize gay marriage [2] in his city, leading to over 3,000 same-sex couples to marry in San Francisco back in ’04 when they could only legally get a “civil union,” is now coming to our home turf to lead a rally in opposition to Prop 8 [3].

The event will take place Friday, October 3rd on Upper Sproul from 12:30 to 1:45pm and will include student speakers, community members and local politicians speaking about the issue. And yet another man who scandalized the country will lead a rally to support something controversial on the steps of Sproul, and so the Berkeley legacy continues.

And check out our post on Prop. 8 [3] from earlier this week.
