More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
New TV Ad for Marriage in Iowa
This morning, One Iowa released a new TV ad in support of marriage for all Iowa families.
From One Iowa:
Today, One Iowa launched this ad to start a conversation with Iowans about the Supreme Court decision that brought marriage equality to the heartland. We can't take this victory for granted. Right now our opponents are working hard to reverse the decision. They are well-funded and well-organized. We need your help NOW to keep this positive ad on the air and protect marriage in the heartland. Whether its $5 or $500, your contribution is vital to protect this victory!
Camilla Taylor, Lambda Legal attorney and lead architect of the Varnum v Brien case, said in One Iowa's press release:
"This ad beautifully illustrates how the Iowa Constitution's guarantee of equality for same-sex couples and their families is consistent with Iowa's long tradition of independence and fair treatment for all families."
