My sister's a lesbian and all I got was a lousy t-shirt

The Courage Campaign made this video to convince the California State Supreme Court to invalidate Proposition 8. (If you don’t watch it for any other reason, watch it for the Regina Spektor song. Yeah.)

“Fidelity”: Don’t Divorce… from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

Watching this made me cry. Maybe it’s the wedding photos, or the loving looks on the couples’ faces, or the pictures of the kids. Maybe it’s just that I’m continually amazed that in 2009 so many people don’t recognize a Civil Rights issue when they see one. In the end, this fight will be won. I believe this. It will be won because it is about love. I’m just frustrated wondering how much time it might take and how many people will suffer while we’re fighting for love to win.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Please go sign the Courage Campaign’s petition by February 14. And keep on lovin’.

Amazing Jen. Thanks so much for posting that. It’s a good thing I skipped the mascara today!
