We attended a Maryland Marriage Equality fundraising event this past weekend.
|Governor O'Malley Sings!|
The governor gave us a treat and picked up a guitar and played a song- and had everyone singing along. If it wasn't for Governor O'Malley the marriage equality law would not have passed in the state. Now, because of churches, it's on the ballot for Marylanders to decide in November (why can't they just leave the law alone and stop being so idiotic?).
Anyway, the evening was nice, and we got to watch a moving 1 hour film about how aging gay people are struggling - and how some have been thrown out of aging care facilities. It was enough to make you mad and make you cry at the same time.
