3) Prop 8 Plaintiffs Reflect on Their Day In Court

Proposition 8 attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies and the Proposition 8 plaintiffs Sandy Stier and her partner Kris Perry, and Paul Katami and his partner Jeffrey Zarrillo took time to reflect Tuesday on the Supreme Court hearing into the constitutionality of Proposition 8. Here’s the video:

4) Justice Kegan Slaps Down House Lawyers on the Prejudice Behind DOMA

The following is audio-only, but it is more than worth it to hear House attorney Paul Clement pause in surprise when Justice Kegan reads from House documents that betray the homophobia that went into passing DOMA:

Justice Kegan went on to say that while the House’s motivation wasn’t the only factor the justices would weigh, that the House had specifically noted they wished to use DOMA to voice their moral disapproval of gay people would raise a “red flag.”

 

5) Superstar Edith Windsor Says the Hearing Went “Beautifully”

Undoubtedly the superstar of the week is Edith Windsor, the 83-year-old who took DOMA all the way to the Supreme Court. Here is Edith after Wednesday’s DOMA arguments, giving a good demonstration of the chutzpah that has powered this case:

Cool, nice to see marriage equality actually becoming equal. It wasn't that long ago that inter-racial marriages were illegal too.

@Jean-Jacques B.

bas·tard
[bas-terd]
noun
1. a person born of unmarried parents; an illegitimate child.

By your own statement... then don't you believe that the Homosexuals fighting for marriage is then in the interests of the children? After all then by definition, if the homosexual parents are married the children are no longer bastards.

But based on your comment I believe you to be selfly against Same Sex Marriage... Am I right? I'm sure I am. Thus it is you who desire children to be bastards, not the homosexuals.

The film captures all the nuance of what may be the defining chapter in the history of the gay and lesbian struggle for equal rights.
