Albeit a great idea, yesterday's "call in gay" day seemed to have little effect. It "drew spotty participation nationwide," found the Daily News and one participant e-mailed LAist saying that the event in West Hollywood last night was a "huge flop." He said a meager 150 people turned out to march on the streets. Up in San Francisco, a larger and much more peaceful (than those in early November) march took to the streets.
