Tuesday 5/26:

Join the fight for LGBT Equality!

Read on for information about…

1) A Rally/Protest TOMORROW, Tuesday 5/26, for SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, following the California Supreme Court’s decision on Proposition 8

2) Upcoming Public Forums in New York City on How We Can Win the Fight for LGBT Equality!

1) “Decision Day” is TOMORROW!

The California Supreme Court just announced that it will release its decision on the fate of Proposition 8 on Tuesday, May 26.   This is a crucial moment in the struggle for gay marriage, in California and nation-wide.

We have won several recent victories in Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, and Washington, DC.  Let’s keep the momentum going!

Come out to a rally/protest on Tuesday, regardless of how the California court rules, and let’s make it clear that we want equality for our LGBT brothers and sisters from CA to NYC!

Meet at 6pm in Sheridan Square
7th Ave and Christopher Street (near Stonewall Bar in the West Village)
March to Union Square at 6:45 where we all will rally!

Join: Marriage Equality New York, Metropolitan Community Church, Lambda Legal, Civil Rights Front, Broadway Impact, Human Rights Campaign, Empire State Pride Agenda, International Socialist Organization, Assemblymember Danny O’Donnell, Senator Thomas Duane, several couples married in California (and who want to stay married!) and many more…

2) From Stonewall to Same-Sex Marriage: How Can We Win the Fight for LGBT Equality?

Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Vermont…will New York be next? With several recent victories, the same-sex marriage movement is on the move. Hundreds of thousands have protested across the country since Obama’s election and the passage of Proposition 8 that stripped Californians of their civil right to marry.

But how can we win it in New York? Why did California lose it? And what will it take to win and keep gay marriage — and full LGBT equality — in the U.S.? Come discuss the history of our struggle and help strategize how we can strengthen our fight today. Hosted by the International Socialist Organization.
