My heart truly breaks for marriage equality today. California's Supreme Court upheld the Prop 8 ban on same-sex marriage
though allowed the 18,000 marriages that already took place to stay
valid. I have a few friends who had City Hall weddings in California
last year, and I am glad their marriage still works, but for the others
who never got that far, I am so sorry. And I hope that you do something about it by volunteering with, donating to or otherwise supporting Equality California.
Marc Solomon and Amy Mello, formerly of the MassEquality team who
preserved gay marriage in Massachusetts are now working in California
to restore gay marriage - they are geniuses but they need tons of
I blogged all about Prop 8 a few months ago so be sure to check that post.
Protests are happening tonight. I wish I was there. In my heart
tonight are my dear friends Jen and Marne who married the day before
last Election Day in California, and who are having a public ceremony
with friends and family this Saturday.
