30 Days of Love, Day 24

"One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love."


Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage licence. 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.
― Retired Judge Vaughn Walker, ruling Prop. 8 unconstitutional

Speak Out for LGBT Equality

Post your favorite social justice/love quote in your Facebook status or Twitter update.

We dedicate this 30 Days of Love action to the struggle for justice and equality for LGBT people, and have pulled some quotes related to LGBT justice you can share via Facebook or Twitter.

Please add your own as well!

Ending marriage discrimination is just one element of our LGBT justice movement, but it is one that inspires great passion, since it focuses on love, commitment, and equality under the law.

So let’s amplify this decision by imparting why it speaks to our highest of ideals.

“No gov’t has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don’t love anybody.” ~Rita Mae Brownocles

It's a great Day for Love. Washington State has passed a marriage equality law, which our governor will sign. Opponents may be planning a voter referendum, but it's still a great and exciting thing now.

The Prop 8 ruling that upholds its unconstitutional nature is also a great thing.

Love, people. How can we stand in the way of Love? No - we are Standing on the Side of Love.

  1. I have friends on both sides of this issue. But I have a family member directly affected by it and I support her right to marry her lifetime partner--they have been together longer than my husband and me!
