After years of leading campaigns for marriage equality, the entertainment industry will be well-represented at the Prop 8 hearing, with Dustin Lance Black at the forefront. The battle has been years in the making; the line to get into the historic event began nearly a week ago. As the Supreme Court finally hears the arguments for and against Proposition 8, the struck-down ban on same-sex marriage in California, Hollywood is in Washington to show its support for marriage equality. Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, who wrote the biopic of gay civil rights leader Harvey Milk and then penned 8, the attention-grabbing, Clooney and Pitt-starring play about the original court case that felled Prop 8, wrote on Facebook that he will be at the Supreme Court for the hearing.
