Hard to believe there was a time when the struggle to
get equal protection on the books for gays and lesbians
was met with even more hostility and rigor than the last
several years of DOMA, Don't Ask/Don't Tell,
and the other various state battles.
But in Tampa and Hillsborough County (Florida)
in the early to mid-1990s, there was an
ongoing soap opera conflagration the
likes of which hasn't been seen since.
To try and help the various ballot measures pass,
I did a Special Edition of FREE P.R.E.S.S.
to educate people as to what exactly the
referendums were about, the wording to expect
on the ballot, and addressing some of the fallacies people
held about the content.
Special flashback thanks to Chuckles for helping
pass them out at busy intersections, and
Monkey Boy for the type-setting assist!
