Prop 8: The Resolution

There is a gathering and live concert this Saturday in at the West Hollywood Auditorium, California in support of overturning Prop 8 and against the Defence of Marriage Act.  For more details, refer to FaceBook.

Prop 8 is something many trans people feel strongly about and the trans community is for – or once! – pretty united it seems in wanting to stand with the LGB movement in support of same sex marriages.  The dynamic is even stronger in the USA as Some states still don’t allow trans people to change their birth certificates so the ban on same sex marriages can also become a double whammy for some trans people.  For example a trans woman in Ohio wanting to marry a man cannot do so: she cannot get her female gender recognised and therefore her desired marriage is considered a same sex marriage.
