Yesterday, ACT UP members and others protested in Times Square to denounce the U.S. military, with particular focus on Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staffs General Pace's remarks about homosexuality being immoral. Andres Duque at Blabbleando has a great post on the protest as well some some nice photographs - check out activist Larry Kramer stirring things up again! Also see Towleroad's coverage.

After a 100 foot rainbow flag was unfurled across 7th Avenue as an act of civil disobedience, two people were arrested - Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum and National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Director Matt Foreman who sat down in the street - and the flag was taken into custody. And, yes, former Governor James McGreevey did appear.

This is also the 20th anniversary of ACT UP; learn more here.
