***THE DECISION WILL COME DOWN ON WEDNESDAY JUNE 24***
The US Supreme Court is about to make its decision on the legality of CA's Prop 8 and the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The date is unknown at this time, so be prepared to mobilize and join us at the Hillcrest Pride Flag for a rally with speakers and a march on the day when they are announced. Then join us afterward at the SD LGBT Center at 7pm for more activities in response to the decision.
A CALL TO RALLY! Next week the United States Supreme Court will begin the hearing on federal marriage rights for the LGBT Community. ON MONDAY, MAR 25TH WE MUST GATHER AS ONE AND CALL FOR FULL FEDERAL MARRIAGE EQUALITY! LOCATION: SD Federal Bldg, 880 FRONT ST, San Diego, CA. 92101 at 6pm!
On March 26 and 27, the United States Supreme Court will hear cases challenging California’s Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which ban legal recognition of same-sex couples’ marriages. Will they uphold the lower-court rulings that have declared marriage equality a civil right? Will they reverse them and say the definition of marriage should be led to each state? Or will they look for a procedural “out” that will allow them to rule narrowly in these cases without establishing any sweeping precedents?
SAME and Activist San Diego(ASD) invite the community for a forum at the Joyce Beers Center at 3900 Vermont St, San Diego, CA. 92103. Mon, 03/18/13 at 7:00pm
Hear prominent local attorneys and activists discuss the legal issues surrounding marriage equality and what the Supreme Court is likely to do.

Rebel Church of England clergy will bless gay marriages carried out in other churches if Anglicans are exempted from a new law on same-sex marriage, some 150 vicars and campaigners said in a letter published on Sunday.
Anglicans including ex-Bishop of Oxford Richard Harries and dozens of clergy wrote to the Sunday Telegraph saying they would advise gay parishioners to marry in Quaker or Unitarian services, then return to their regular church.
