Why yet another blog? Because the court has left us in an odd position. About 18,000 same sex couples in California joyfully married between May and November, 2008. During that time, the sun went about its appointed rounds, no earthquakes dropped the state into the Pacific, and in fact, not much changed in real life.
Now, we exist in a legal limbo. Our GLBT brothers and sisters can't marry. We are the ambassadors for gay marriage in California, but also for the rest of the country (or at least the 45 states where it remains illegal).
So on this blog, I invite you to tell your story, as a married GLBT person . (If you post it in the comments, I will convert it to a real post). Of course, anyone is welcome to enter into the conversation -- married, single, gay or straight. We'll discuss the arguments that have been used against us, and develop talking points to defend our right to marry. However, this isn't a blog where the idea of gay marriage is to be debated. This blog exists with the viewpoint that all of us should have the right to marry the partner whom we love. If you don't agree, maybe we can persuade you. But in the end, I'm not interested in hearing yet again why the opposition thinks I'm wrong. I'm interested in how we can make it right for all of us.
