Same-Sex Marriage Rights
by SF Pride
On May 26, the California Supreme
Court announced its decision to uphold
which amended the state Constitution to
eliminate the right of same-sex couples
While the Court defended the existing
18,000+ same-sex marriages that took
place prior to Prop 8's passage,
legal discrimination now stands.
This is why we must
gather together this year at
Pride on June 27-28,
2009, to express our
collective protest. Prop 8 and
discrimination cannot be permitted to stand!
