No knitting in this post either. I do have knitting to share, I just haven't gotten to posting it quite yet.
This is just to say -- in 30 days my brother and his partner of over 20 years can legally marry in California. I am so thrilled. Can't wait for the wedding, in fact.
Stuart and John get the happy news.
Here is a story on the subject, and you can see my brother Stuart and my BIL-to-be in a video on that page.
They were in fact married in 2004 in San Francisco City Hall, but, along with several thousand others, had their marriage declared void by the courts.
Now they can do it again, with a party and everything, and it will be legal.
Much as I hate to add a down note to this joyous announcement, I must. Those who favor marriage discrimination are trying to qualify an initiative for the November ballot that would write discrimination into our state constitution.
I for one plan to do all I can to oppose those efforts. Let us move toward less discrimination, not more.
