Kevin And Don Respond To Being Self Loathing

Looking back at their journey from the Stonewall Democratic Club to Log Cabin Republicans, they claim it was one that was actually started by the democrats. After being told that marriage as not a priority on the agenda in 1995, they became disillusioned with the DEMS. For a decade they felt like they did not belong until they met the republicans of the Log Cabin Republican Club and discovered they too shared a dream of marriage equality. This blog is now a digital time capsule of their time as Republicans and moderated by a friend and supporter.

FRONTIERS IN LA: Federal Prop. 8 Challenge Judge Orders Documents Produced

Federal Prop. 8 Challenge Judge Orders Documents Produced

San Francisco federal judge Vaughn Walker ruled Oct. 23 that proponents of Proposition 8 in a lawsuit challenging the measure under the U.S. Constitution must give plaintiffs documents pertaining to last year’s campaign, LGBTPOV.com reports. The case was brought by conservative former U.S. Solicitor General Tom Olson and liberal attorney David Boies on behalf of same-sex couples denied marriage licenses in California.

The documents ordered to be produced include strategy plans and emails, which plaintiffs want to examine to determine whether anti-gay animus played any role in motivating the pro-Prop. 8 forces. “The intent or purpose of Prop. 8 is central to this litigation,” Walker said Oct. 1.

The ruling “will make any citizen group think twice before attempting a ballot initiative,” said Andrew Pugno, a pro-Prop. 8 lawyer.

Walker refused to stay his order pending appeal. The trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 11.
