My own sense is that there doesn't seem to be a 'taking it to the streets' kind of involvement any more. I've even heard this remarked about.
But not just gay rights. Everything. There is almost no take it to the streets involvement on any issue. We've been collectively discouraged from that sort of thing for decades, a generation or so. It surely doesn't help that so many people have faced police harassment or arrest when they were WELL within their legal and free speech rights. But that alone is not it. Most people don't even think in terms of 'take it to the streets' action. I think we're taught that only 'weird' people, some kind of activist 'fringe,' do that.
