You're all ecstatic that the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8 have been kicked to the curb with this morning's Supreme Court decisions, so this is probably old news.
But just in case you've missed it, a rally to celebrate the decisions (and mobilize for Oregon's own push toward marriage equality) has been set for 5 pm at downtown's Terry Schrunk Plaza (SW 3rd and Madison). According to Oregon United for Marriage, here's who's lined up to speak:
WHO: Former Governor Barbara Roberts, Jeana Frazzini, Dave Fidanque, Se-ah-dom Edmo, Linda Campbell, Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, Vanessa Usui, Mayor Charlie Hales, Barbara McCullough-Jones, Helena Huang Rev. Bill Sinkford, Chair Jeff Cogen, Commissioner Amanda Fritz, Gina Diaz and Regina Perata and family, Rev. Mark Knutson
