Stop8 site now serving as info center

A web site developed by a San Francisco man, www.stop8.org, has been revamped to be “a hub of information about the fight for equality.”

“There’s been a huge groundswell of support since the election, and now’s a crucial time to show our friends and families how they can help,” Matt Baume, the man behind the Web site, said in an e-mail to supporters.

The site includes updates on the evolving aftermath of Prop 8’s passage from a wide variety of blogs, newspapers, and other media; and links where people can go to get involved, whether it’s by attending rallies or signing petitions.

Equality California, which was a key member of the No on 8 coalition, announced yesterday (Wednesday, November 12) that it aims to work to repeal Prop 8 if efforts to get the state Supreme Court to overturn it fail.

The Stop8 site started during efforts to defeat the measure banning same-sex marriage in California, but has never been part of the official No on 8 campaign.

Before Election Day, the site consisted mainly of videos of same-sex couples telling their stories and urging people to vote no on Prop 8.

Baume told the Bay Area Reporter that he’s getting about 700 visitors a day, and he’ll keep the site going as long as he can.
