Poster Child

In the SF Chronicle today: THE BATTLE OVER SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: Straights working to win legal rights for gay couples: “They’re straight – but they don’t consider themselves narrow. And now they’re mad…. Among the new activists is Derek Powazek of San Francisco, who headed to Civic Center three days after the weddings began with his fiancee and a homemade ‘congratulations’ sign. The 30-year-old Web site designer and producer brought along a camera and began snapping photos.”

The last few times I talked to reporters, my quotes seemed to come out saying something I didn’t mean. So it’s nice to finally deal with a reporter who got it right. My thanks to Rona Marech for covering this story with sensitivity and smarts.

Hi, I’m Derek. I used to make websites. Now I grow flowers and know things. I’m mostly harmless. More.
