Post-Rally Mission to Carpe Diem
Today is the day! Judge Vaughn Walker will release his decision on the constitutionality of Prop 8 sometime between 1 and 3 this afternoon.
Towleroad guest blogger Ari Ezra Waldman says "August 4, 2010 will be a momentous day in the history of LGBT law. Today’s decision will mark the first time a federal district court has ruled explicitly on the constitutionality of a voter-approved initiative that withdrew marriage equality rights from millions of Californians. It will tell the story of why millions of dollars were spent to prevent committed gay couples from marrying and whether that story merits legal legitimacy. It will also set the stage for the upcoming legal battles at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court."
As Vice President Joe Biden once said - "This is a big F***in' deal!"
Win or Lose - the Napa Valley Unity League, Napa Valley Equality Coalition and many other organizations are planning a "Day of Decision Rally" at Veterans Park in Napa (on Main Street between 2nd and 3rd Streets) from 6 to 8 p.m.
