On August 23rd, 2008, two girls in love made promises to eachother in front of their families and friends, to protect one another, to support one another, to trust and heal and grow together. Not religious, but spiritual, they opted to wear clean white dresses because they could, because that May the great state of California gave them a basic human dignity, a right that they never took for granted. Not for one moment.
On November 4th, 2008, two girls in love went to the polls to protect themselves and others by voting to keep this basic human dignity, a right that 16,000 other couples never took for granted. Not for one moment.
On November 4th, 2008, as soon as America put a progressive and extraordinary man into our 44th Presidency, two girls in love had their hearts broken when Prop 8 passed, because they believed it would somehow be okay, that a state constitution would not uphold segregation and intolerance and inequality. Not again. Not for one moment. Not California.
Two girls in love will be walking down Market St. tomorrow in their clean, white dresses - the same dresses they made promises to eachother in a mere two months ago.
Gathering @ Civic Center 5:30
Ending at Dolores Park
Love isn't wrong. Protest Prop 8. Bring your veils & tuxes. And combat boots, if you like...
