Judge Overturns Prop 8; Wingspan's Response

Posted By on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 4:30 PM

Wow, sanity and justice prevail. Let's hope it continues.

Great coverage on today's Prop 8 ruling from the Los Angeles Times here.

Here is a statement released today from Linda Thomas, Wingspan's director of programs:

The ruling to overturn Proposition 8 by a federal judge in California is encouraging for same sex marriage supporters. This decision gives the LGBT community a welcomed and renewed optimism in our quest for equality. Although the immediate effects of the ruling remain unknown and experts agree that this will be a case that will eventually be taken to the Supreme Court, we rejoice in knowing that justice and liberty prevail at this moment in history.
