Looking carefully at the donor database for California Proposition 8 (the proposition that simultaneously eliminated gay marriage, same-sex marriage, genderless marriage, and homosexual marriage in this state) startling information emerges: Gays actually donated in greater numbers and greater amounts for proposition 8 than against it. Donors such as Gay Rudek, Gay Lee Butterfield, and Jon Gay narrowly outnumbered the anti-prop-8 folks such as Jeff Gay, Joan Gay, and photographer Gay Block.
Please note that for this study, only those individuals who self-identified as “Gay” were included. The Gayles, Agaylas, Gaytans, and even the Gaylords were not included, although many of them may casually be Gay. (Raw data available here.)
