Hello Friends and Family:
As you know, Anna and I were legally married on August 15, 2008 in the beautiful Rotunda at San Francisco City Hall. It was one of the happiest days of our lives. But, our marriage and those of other gay and lesbian couples will be nullified if the proponents of Proposition 8 have their way.
The ballot description for Proposition 8 makes it perfectly clear. Prop 8 "eliminates the right of same sex couples to marry."
The proponents of Proposition 8 do not believe that Anna and I have the right to marry, that somehow our marriage and our 14 year relationship are less meaningful and less sacred than that of a man and a woman. They argue that allowing gays and lesbians to marry will erode the family. But, we have two gorgeous sons who believe otherwise. They were overjoyed that they were present to witness their mothers finally being given the right to legally take their vows, vows which signify the love Anna and I have for each other and the love we have for our them.
No On Prop 8, Equality For All is the coalition that is leading the fight to defeat Prop 8 and defend the fundamental right to marry for all Californians. Please help me help them.
I have never before asked you to contribute to a political cause, but I am asking for your help now. We cannot allow those who would write discrimination into the California constitution to win. We must tell the proponents of Proposition 8 in no uncertain terms that fear and hate will not be tolerated by any Californian, straight or gay.

I thank and love you all,
