Life with Benny: Signs of the times

With so much of our activism done online and through Social Media these days, it's a lot of fun to see the various posters people make when attending marriage equality rallies and other LGBT pride events.

Monday evening's rally held in San Diego - on the eve of the Supreme Court's Prop 8 hearing - had plenty of great handmade signs and posters in support of equality - including one that went viral!

Check out some of my favorites that were spotted in photos after the event:

A photo of Courtney holding this sign was retweeted by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy, which led to an additional 1,400 retweets, and over 5,000 reblogs on Tumblr!
