Queer Town: L.A. Raises Money for Maine's Gay Marriage Fight
On the day anti-gay marriage forces aired their first TV ad in Maine, Los Angeles gays and lesbians gathered for a fund-raiser at West Hollywood's East/West Lounge, hauling in between $5,000 and $6,000 for Protect Maine Equality, the campaign that's fighting to keep same-sex marriage legal in that state.

In Los Angeles, plans are underway to counter anti-gay marriage forces by donating time and energy, as well as money, to the same-sex marriage cause in Maine -- voter ID phone banks will be set up at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center on September 27, October 4 and 11.
For more information, go to the center's Web site.
