Today, February 28, 2013, PFLAG National filed an amicus brief in support of the plaintiffs in the Perry v. Hollingsworth case. This case challenges the constitutionality of California’s “Proposition 8” legislation which eliminated the right for same-sex couples to marry. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in the case on March 26 and 27.
From PFLAG National’s press release issued today:
“This brief shares the stories of PFLAG families and the very real impact that their lack of equal protection under the law has not just on the same –sex couple in a committed and loving relationship, but on the entire family,” said PFLAG National Executive Director Jody M. Huckaby. “Their stories share real–life firsthand accounts of how seeing gay and lesbian family members in committed relationships and marriages has reaffirmed—not harmed—their views on the importance of the institution of marriage”
