Colorado LGBT Lobby Day and civil unions update

Daniel Gonzales

February 25th, 2011

In their continuing legislative campaign for civil unions, One Colorado held an “LGBT lobby day” where 120 Coloradans from all over the state met with their legislators.  Most impressive was the contingent from Grand Junction who had to depart at 3am to arrive in time for the morning event.

As he says in the video, Rep Mark Ferrandino now believes if the bill reaches the floor of the House that it will pass (despite a Republican majority of one vote).  The real threat to the bill is being sent to a kill-committee by Speaker Of The House Frank McNulty and thus never being voted on.

Here’s footage I shot from the day’s events:

(turn your speakers up, the Capitol is a busy and echoey building so there’s some background noise)
