The Final Word on Prop 8

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 grassroots support.

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.
