Greuel and Garcetti join in marriage equality meme

greuel-garcetti-equality-grab.jpgNot unexpectedly, both Los Angeles mayoral candidates — Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti, or their staffers for them — showed their support for gay marriage by switching their Facebook profile images on Tuesday. As you can see from the screen grab, Councilwoman Jan Perry did not. The red logo is an alteration of the Human Rights Campaign logo, and the gay rights political group was urging supporters to use the red logo on social media. A number of celebrities and mostly liberal politicians took up the challenge.

A cursory glance down my Facebook stream found that some of the Los Angeles media types who changed their profile pics to the political message du jour — timed to the Supreme Court oral arguments on California's voter-approved Proposition 8 — included LA Times book critic David Ulin, LAT reporter Ari Bloomekatz, Fishbowl LA co-editor Pandora Young, Patch editors Anthea Raymond and Rich Kane and the OC Register's Charles Apple. Most in the local media did not take part.
