Friday Is Freedom To Marry Day

loveunites.jpgLA Metblogs clued us into this one. This Friday, Feb. 13 there will be marches and rallies throughout Los Angeles in support of Marriage equality. The largest one promises to be at the Beverly Hills courthouse. From the event’s page on Facebook:

On March 5th, the CA Supreme Court will hear oral arguments over whether or not to junk the anti-gay Proposition 8 and restore California same-sex marriages. Their decision is expected within 90 days after that.

Robin Tyler and Diane Olson, the original lesbian plaintiffs in the CA Supreme Court marriage equality suit, will repeat their vows which will be given by Rabbi Denise L. Eger. They are also plaintiffs in the current lawsuit (Tyler et al vs State of California) to overturn Proposition 8. Rev. Troy Perry, plaintiff, will also attend, along with the attorney in the previous and current case, Gloria Allred.
