I`m posting this here as well as in activism 'cause we need all the luck & good wishes we can get....<br><br>
My wife & I are en route to Canada`s Parliament Hill today to take part in an event to recognize the 1st anniversary of same-sex marriage. Our names are going to be used in a press release condemning Stephen Harper, the Conservative candidate for PM who has said that he will not ask the courts to recognize same-sex marriage.<br><br>
I'm kind of nervous (and excited!) we feel very strongly about this issue (see my sig) especially as it applies to the rights of future children we may have.. but my dw is nervous about hurting her deeply religious family who were upset by our media appearances next year. I am aware that it's easy to get sucked into the media vortex at these things and I'm hoping it will be okay.<br><br>
Wish us luck! (and if you're in Canada, watch for us on the news...maybe!)

Thanks Korin!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> you're the best!!<br><br>
We just got back & it WAS GREAT! A beautiful sunny day, not too hot, lots of people, nice wedding/anniversary cake & a very inspiring speech by Ed Broadbent (a famous left-wing Canadian politician—we got to shake his hand!! I’m so excited!) And because it was an election, the focus was on the politicians, not on us… so no worries for my dw. There may be a nice picture of us in the background, or a small quote, but nothing big and we were still able to lend our support. It was so inspiring to see some families there with little kids (queer & straight) and to see people from all walks of life standing up to defend Canada’s Charter of Rights. I feel very inspired!<br>
But now I have to go back to work…<br><br>
Thanks again!!
