I watched the event from a pub on church street, in the center of the gay village in Toronto, Canada. I really did enjoy the whole event, even though the opening warm up wasn't so hot (though that was likely more to do with technical difficulties on out end the the performance it's self.)
I hope calmer heads prevail in the US, since the state of the (un)united states effects things across the boarder.
I think the tenderness is a cornerstone of the sentiment behind the rally. The "sane" contingent isn't trying to mock or put down the "fearful" people; we care about them, and want their lives to be calmer and easier
That's a good mirror of reality, too: the real-world "sanity" rallies are acting to make life better for everyone by focusing on getting rid of the corrupt/incompetent elements making us all miserable and broke, even as the "fearful" continue to hurl insults, put-downs, and stereotypes at them.
My friend and I were discussing what we think is going to happen today in art. She's thinking it might be a fight, while I think it's going to be wedding. The interesting part is she's bisexual and I'm straight. xD
