Tuesday, Not Mewsday

The good news: Melissa and I are still married.

The bad news: the California State Supreme Court has upheld Prop. 8, meaning that all gay and lesbian couples in California are now constitutionally prohibited from marrying. (To add to the injury, it was a 6-1 ruling.)

Melissa and I feel lucky to have friends, family, and coworkers who celebrate and honor our commitment to each other. Please stop and think about what you can do today (and tomorrow and next week and next month) to see that the handful of us who were able to marry in California between June 17, 2008 and November 4, 2008 are not the last.

I’ll be at tonight’s vigil with the sign I made last fall—”Knitters say K2tog: it’s a good thing.”
