It’s time for the videotapes of the trial to be made public so that the public can hear firsthand the testimony of lesbian and gay couples about the devastating harm that Proposition 8 causes their families. Last year, the district court conducted a 12 day trial where anyone and everyone had the opportunity to present evidence about Proposition 8. The court concluded in an extraordinarily detailed 136 page opinion that the opponents of marriage equality had produced not even a scintilla of evidence that could justify Prop. 8’s exclusion of loving, committed same-gender couples from marriage. Yet, marriage equality opponents continue to try to litigate the issue and keep the real facts away from the American people.
