Proposition 8

COMMENTARY: Marriage, taxes and the unfairness of DOMA

For those married California LGBT couples, and those with a registered California domestic partnership, this time of year brings a special inequality. Same-sex married/registered couples must prepare their taxes twice, once as a single taxpayer to the federal government and once as a married couple to the State of California.

ACTION ALERT: Drop the charges against the Equality 9!

Rosa Parks should never have been arrested for defending her right to sit at the front of a bus in Birmingham, Ala. Neither should any of us be tried or charged for simply demanding the right of our friends to be married after Prop. 8 was ruled unconstitutional.
