North Carolina is going to vote on a possible amendment to our state constitution that would BAN same sex marriages, civil unions, and domestic partnerships. That means, even if you go to NY and get married, if you’re a resident of NC, you will not have the legal rights that a married couple has. Because of this, there have been a few small movements in NC in a way to protest and get the message out there to people who may not be informed about the upcoming vote.
This is a great video, albeit a little sad. It highlights the impact that proponents of “traditional marriage” have on other peoples’ lives.
I realize that I’m many states away, but whatever I can do to help, NC, I’m standing with you!
