Hey everyone-- I have something very important that I'd really like to set in motion, and I need as much as help as I can get.
I've written a petition against the constitutional amendment to BAN GAY MARRIAGE now being pushed by conservatives. I want to get this out into the public-- across the country, across the world-- and Oasis was an obvious arena to start an underground movement among gay youth.
I want to be able to get married someday, and if we don't act now, that may not be a choice for gays and lesbians. I don't want to see that happen, and I need your help in fighting against those who do.
Below is the first draft of the petition I've written. I'm accepting any suggestions-- revisions, criticism, support, ideas for getting the word out. Email is HLA83@aol.com
Please help. This means a lot to me, and I hope it means as much to you.
SIGN AND CIRCULATE—CHANGE OUR FUTURE
