Prop 8 protest or celebration Tuesday May 26

It's official; the California Supreme Court will rule on Prop 8 this coming Tuesday. Win or lose, there will be a rally at San Francisco City Hall at 5 p.m. that day, followed by a march. I plan to be there. I invited a bunch of friends to the event on Facebook already. If you aren't on Facebook or aren't in San Francisco, please check out the Day of Decision web site for information on gatherings.

This ruling is extremely important to me. My marriage to boyziggy should not be recognized only because we happen to be opposite sexes. My good friend and former boss thomwatson wants to marry his partner jefftabaco, and I see no reason why they should be prevented from doing this. My good friend, former co-worker, and best man from my own wedding, Charles, wants to marry his partner Tony, and again I see no reason why they can't just because they both happen to be men.

I realize this post is probably preaching to the choir for virtually everyone reading my blog, but I just have to add my voice of support to overturn this ridiculous decision. I don't really care that it's "the will of the people". I'm a black woman; if it were solely up to "the will of the people" I would have far fewer rights than I do now. Sexual preference is no different. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
