SCOTUS Hears Oral Arguments About Prop 8 & Marriage Equality! Listen IN FULL Here!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

It's an exciting time in humanity's history people!

Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the official federal constitutional challenge to California's Proposition 8.

In case you missed ANY part of the explosive discussion, don't fret! Take a good, long listen (above)!

If you are somehow unaware of Prop 8 or the controversy that surrounds it, let us briefly inform you…

Prop 8 is a state constitutional amendement that received a majority of Californian votes in November 2008. The proposition declares "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Thus, any same sex marriages that had previously been recognized in the eyes of the law were no longer considered so, and same sex couples were (again) unable to legally get married.

Thankfully, this GROSS violation of equal rights is FINALLY being addressed, and on a nation-wide platform!

And whatever the Supreme Court decides, it's going to be MONUMENTAL.

Here's to a more tolerant, enlightened future society!
