DC Council to Hold Hearing on Marriage Equality


Next Monday, the DC City Council will hold a hearing on marriage equality.  As many have heard, two weeks ago, Councilman David Catania introduced a bill that would allow same-sex marriages to be performed in the nation’s capital.

The fact that Catania introduced the bill is nothing of a shock to those who follow the machinations of the Council.  What is surprising is the fact that to date, ten of the 13 members of the Council have signed on as cosponsors of the bill.  Mayor Adrian Fenty has already said that he will sign a marriage equality bill once it is presented to him.

If I took anything away from the National Equality March here in DC last weekend, it was that we must act locally throughout our communities, cities, and states in order to assure full equality for all.

That is why I plan to attend the hearing next week, and testify, if needed.  The fight for equality must continue!
