I am a victim of H8

November 10th, 2008     by Mir Verburg     Comments

I am a Victim of H8 is a Facebook photo album created by Gary Shay. Each of the images is of the same slogan, and the idea is that people should tag the images with the names of everyone they know who is negatively affected by Prop 8. Presumably this includes self-tagging.

I am still trying to decide if I should tag myself, since as a Canadian I am not directly affected by the new legislation. That being said, if the latest federal election teaches us anything it’s not to underestimate the power of the trickle down (trickle up?) effect of conservative values from south of the border.

What do you think? What impact is Prop 8 going to have on Canadians? More to the point, am I a victim of h8 or simply excited to tag myself as a politicized queer?
