At the front of the line to get legally married in California today, are Lesbian pioneers Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, founders of the "Daughter's of Bilitis" in 1955. They have been a loving couple for 55 years!
Polls show that over half (51%) of California voters now support same-sex marriage rights. Opposition to marriage equality is slowly fading. It is time for liberal Democrats to quit "opposing" gay marriage while claiming they support "equal rights" for gays! Civil Unions are NOT equal to civil marriage!
Eric Jaye, S.F. Mayor Gavin Newsom's political consultant, published this excellent piece calling on Democrats to stand up for their values (equality, social justice) and defend marriage equality: A Democratic Strategy for Gay Marriage
