Last night was a tremendous victory for Democrats, the American people and I believe for future of our World. Barack Obama is our President-Elect and won by a landslide.
So much happiness, yet last night I couldn't stop crying over the pending passage of Prop 8 to once again ban gay marriage in the state of California.
This news is devastating to my family as to many of you but I know this is a fight that we will win. It might not win it tomorrow but we will win it within our lifetime and I personally vow to keep fighting for progress.
Now here's the good news, this morning I was forwarded a link to the Washington Blade informing us that the fight back has already begun.
VIVA LA LESBIANISM!
"SF City Attorney to file legal challenge to Prop 8
Measure leads with 52 percent of vote
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) | Nov 5, 12:02 PM
The San Francisco City Attorney's office says he plans to challenge the validity of a ballot measure that would change the state constitution to ban gay marriage.
Spokesman Matt Dorsey says City Attorney Dennis Herrera will file the legal challenge in the California Supreme Court if the measure passes.
With 95% of precincts reporting, Proposition 8 is leading with 52% of the vote. But there are still as many as 3 million ballots left to be counted.
The first lesbian couple to be married in Los Angeles County after the Supreme Court threw out the gay marriage ban also plans to announce a lawsuit against Proposition 8. Attorney Gloria Allred says that lawsuit will argue that the measure is unconstitutional."
