Prop 8 - the Story in California

Like millions of others, the day after the nation elected Obama last November, I was heartbroken to hear that California voters chose against marriage equality when they narrowly passed ballot initiative Proposition 8.  18,000 same-sex couples (including Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi) in California married between June-November 2008 and those marriages are in limbo.

As most of you know, lawyers mounted a challenge to the vote which was heard yesterday before the California Supreme Court.  The analysts are saying that it's likely the Court will uphold Prop 8 but those 18,000 couples will likely get to stay married.

My friends Jen and Marne are on my mind (they married the day before election day last year) and I encourage everyone to show support for marriage equality in California.
