Chiah Presents [powered by Julia and Chiah] has created a video which showcases teenagers with lesbian and gay parents. The kids show their normalcy and highlight their healthy families. The group is using the piece to help strengthen community support to oppose California’s Proposition 8.
A recent poll indicates that fifty-five percent of likely voters oppose Prop 8, an increase from 51 percent who opposed it just a few months ago. The percentage of undecided voters has been steady – at 7 percent.
If a majority of voters approve – Prop 8 would define marriage as being between a man and a woman in the California constitution. It would nullify a May ruling by the California Supreme Court that overturned a 2000 gay marriage ban as unconstitutional.
The Court’s ruling said: an individual’s sexual orientation, like a person’s race or gender, does not constitute a legitimate basis upon which to deny or withhold legal rights.
