Marraige Is Not An Equal Right (just yet) BUT IT IS IN CALIFORNIA! by Meg Keene The California Supreme Court had overturned the ban on gay marriages. You should know, that when the news hit, I was at my computer, hitting refresh on my New York Times browser. (I might like talking about weddings, but in real life, I’m a political junkie). I was so overjoyed that I teared up, and David is still reading all 108 pages of the decision. We each celebrate in our own ways. Hopefully it will still be legal next August. It’s important to remember we have a long road ahead of us. **Update: we just got back from The Castro, since we thought today would be a nice day, symbolically, to pick up my wedding ring, which was getting resized. A store had a sign up with a rainbow flag that said ‘Proud to be a Californian’ and I teared up all over again.** Meg Keene Founder & Editor-In-Chief Meg is the Founder and EIC of APW.
