Love Wins…

Today was an incredible day for LGBT rights. Today the Proposition 8 (Gay Marriage Ban in California) was deemed unconstitutional and overturned. Full article here.

In June of 2008, California’s courts legalized same-sex marriage. In November it was taken back after voters turned it around through a very nasty campaign, filled with untrue propaganda. For the last two years, people have been working diligently to put the rights back into place for every person in California. Two same-sex couples had to go all the way to District Court to see this through and because of their bravery, Prop 8 has finally been overturned.
This video was posted on Youtube by the Courage Campaign after Prop 8 won the vote in 2008. Even though same-sex couples were legally allowed to marry for 6 months before the vote, the other side wanted their marriages annulled. These are couples and families that were showing their love and asking not to be forcefully divorced. It shows a great deal of love. Please watch.
Here’s a photo of me (taken by my husband) from the protest that ensued in San Diego after Prop 8 first passed after election day, 2008. I’m in blue, and those guys on the right are checkin’ out my sexy hubs. : )
Judge Walker’s decision will most likely be appealed by those wishing to discriminate against Gays/Lesbians, so it’s likely this case will be taken all the way to the US Supreme Court. If this happens, we will have a long road ahead of us, but I believe that EQUALITY will prevail in the end, just like it did today. Love wins.

If you have any celebratory photos to share, please email them to me!
