Back in 2008, I took notice when then San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom made public his intention of allowing gay couples to be legally married in the City. But so did all the people, institutions, churches, and other various miscellaneous entities who chose to oppose.
First I would like to make it clear, I don’t care about marriage, I didn’t like being married when I was, and I am in no way ever getting married again. But living in San Francisco you have a tendency to live next door and are friends with people, who have been affected either negatively or positively by same-sex marriage.
In the same year then Mayor Gavin Newsom allowed same-sex marriage, a ban on same-sex marriage was elected by the people and placed on the California Constitution. I immediately noticed the inequality and started doing my thing, which was to show the actions that took place in San Francisco over the ban on same-sex marriage, and create videos and take pictures of those effected by that ban.
I must now make this clear: I don’t think that gay or lesbian people should be denied their rights. My picture stories, videos, article and news posts have gotten thousands of hits. I will post the links of the coverage I created and produced for gay or lesbian folks who want to be able to marry legally in the United States and namely California.
