The ballot description for Proposition 8 makes it perfectly clear. Prop 8 "eliminates the right of same sex couples to marry."
We have lived together in a conservative part of California for the past 14 years. When we moved into our home our street of 10 homes had 3 gay couples. Gay people in conservative California! We are sure there are some open-minded straight people round here too.
Our conservative neighbors have so far been more active than us. We are seeing a multitude of Yes on 8 signs in our neighborhood. We know that No on 8 has many supporters. Please make a contribution to show your suport.
As a gay community we are very good at talking about it: "it's a civil right," "they are not being fair," "they shouldn't take it away from us," "there's a Yes on 8 by the freeway" and yet we take NO action.
Our straight friends tell us "there should be equality," "you should have the right to marry," "we don't agree with Proposition 8" and yet it's not really their problem so they do nothing.
Please take action NOW! We are days away from a decision that will impact the way we are treated for the rest of our lives. We will either be regarded as being EQUAL to everyone else or not. It really is as simple as that. This is NOT something that will work itself out. This is something where your help is needed.
No one is asking you to empty out your life savings. Just donate as much as you can. Then after November 4th when the decision has been made, at least you will be able to say you DID something.
Please contribute to our fundraising page today!
Please pass this onto to your friends and family.
