Don't divorce us


If you haven't seen this video from the Courage Campaign, please take a moment to watch it and sign the accompanying petition to the CA Supreme Court that asks them to invalidate Prop 8.  It brings home the importance for keeping marriage for gay and lesbian couples like nothing else I've ever seen. The community goal is 500,000 views and 200,000 signatures by Valentine's Day:

And if you want to get even more involved in the fight for marriage rights, come canvass with me Saturday afternoon!  What's a better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than by talking directly with voters in an effort to change people's hearts and minds about same sex marriage. It is important that folks see what a supporter for LGBT marriage looks like - we come in all colors, sexual orientations, ages, religions, sizes, and income levels. During canvassing, it takes a lot of courage for our LGBT friends to come out to people who repudiate their very existence - and it's important for us to support them and stand along side them. Training and lunch will be provided - bring a friend!  Email me for details: nest.insomniac at gmail dot com.

Keep up the good fight. It's going to be on the next ballot (or two), I'm pretty convinced. :(
