The Next Family would like to announce that Prop 8 has been overturned. We have Tracy Thomas on the scene taking pictures for an upcoming photo essay.
From: Judge Vaughn Walker
“Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California constitution, the notion that opposite sex couples are superior to same sex couples. Because California has no interest in discriminating against gay men and lesbians and because Proposition 8 prevents California from fulfilling it’s constitutional obligation to provide marriages on an equal basis, the court concludes that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.
