Sign the Million for Marriage Equality Petition

When the California Supreme Court ruled that denying same-sex couples the right to marry is unconstitutional, we came one step closer to achieving true marriage equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans.

Sign the Petition.

You can help maintain this progress—anti-GLBT groups, emboldened by the decision, are now working to deny benefits to GLBT couples on both state and federal levels. As always they try to over turn equality and fairness by putting the issue on voter ballots. The problem with that is that same-sex marriage is not an issue that affects anyone else but gays and lesbians, and therefore, should not be voted on by the general populace. It is inconsequential to them - it is a matter of fairness and equality, not popularity and needs to be decided by and protected by judges.

Dear Michael - not an American so can't sign the petition, but I'm spreading the word. I hope it makes a difference. The manifest unfairness of the anti-gay marriage movement should be obvious to all. One day, it will be.
