Same-sex marriage advocates in California are encouraging people to “call in gay” on Wednesday to protest the passage of Proposition 8, the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, the AP is reporting.

It’s being called “A Day Without a Gay,” much like last year’s “A Day Without a Mexican,” when immigrant-rights supporters were encouraged not to spend money or go to work.


To counter the boycott, supporters of Proposition 8 plan to go to work as usual and buy twice the amount of stuff they usually get — without coupons, if necessary.
