Obama's in L.A.; gay-marriage backers plan protest at Beverly Hills fundraiser he will attend

May 27, 2009 |  3:06 pm

President Obama arrived in Los Angeles this afternoon for an evening fundraiser at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Advocates of gay marriage plan to picket in front of the hotel.

Obama will be attending the Democratic National Committee event, at which Jennifer Hudson is scheduled to perform.

The protest comes a day after the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8, the ban on gay marriage. Obama has said he believes marriage should be between a man and a woman.
