THANKS for the support and a great rally. Also, thanks for being witness to my marriage proposal to Jim, my boyfriend of 2 years. Take a look at some video coverage:
===============================================================================================================Day of Decision is May 26.
NEWS: Prop 8 was upheld in a vote of 6-1, but the 18,000 marriages will remain valid. This is the first time in U.S. history that the majority has taken away pre-existing rights of a minority. A friend whose marriage was in jeopardy said that this is like Nazi Germany.

Rally in Protest on the Day of the Decision
Come out support your U.S. brothers and sisters! Remember, "We Are Family"
Gay and lesbian Canadians travelling in the U.S. should be concerned. Should there be trouble, either medical or legal, same-sex partners could be barred from visiting each other, as in the tragic case of one lesbian couple visiting Florida last year.
Join us at Denman and Davie at 6pm on the Day of Decision. Your participation keeps the hope alive!

Wear a white knot. We'll giving out free white knot ribbons at the rally.
Discussion on the Canadians Against Prop 8 Facebook group.
Due to requests from the Yukon to Nova Scotia, we thought that if groups in small towns sent us a large "white knot ribbon" with their city in large letters and signatures/messages, we would display it at the rally. The white knot ribbon could be out of cloth or poster paper. See "www.whiteknot.org" for the shape of the ribbon (as seen at the Oscars). E-mail Roger for the mailing address.
