Spotlight on Ballot Initiatives: Some Powerful Videos

26 10 2008

I had intended to write separately about each of the marriage initiatives on various ballots, but since what I’ve already written about for Proposition 8 applies pretty much across the board, today I’m going to share some particularly effective campaign videos with you.  Don’t forget to vote!

Arizona:

(No on Proposition 102, a constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage)

Arizona Together

Arkansas:

(No on Act 1, a measure that would ban cohabiting couples from fostering or adopting children)

Arkansas Families First

California:

(No on Prop 8, constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and woman)

Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco

Haviland & Reese: I Hate My Gay Friends

Feminist Majority Foundation 

Ellen

California Superintendent of Schools

No On Prop 8

Love Poem (One of my favourites)

Connecticut:

(No on Question 1, which would mean a constitutional convention and possibly overturning of gay marriage)

Protect Our Constitution

Florida:

(No on Proposition 2, a marriage amendment that would also make heterosexual domestic partnerships illegal)

Michael Schiavo

Heterosexual domestic partners against Prop 2

And Finally:

Everyone should see this video.  But don’t watch when you’re somewhere where crying is inappropriate.  (Happy tears, I promise.)

Harvey Milk
