Sunday Morning Music for Marriage Equality

Last night, JeremiahFP (originally a JRE supporter in 2007) posted a diary at DK about his engagement to Karla. They've been together for 11 years, known each other since a summer camp. This is a big step for them, but what they recognize is that 50 years ago, the marriage wouldn't have been allowed legally or culturally. Why? The couple is interracial.

Today they are leading a rally for marriage equality in Queens. The NY state assembly is scheduled to vote on marriage equality soon. Jeremiah and Karla want to see it passed. They, like yours truly, do not see why gay people are ready for a legal commitment, shouldn't have one.

Karla is an actress and she sang at a Broadway for Equality concert a month ago. Here's the clip. Hope you enjoy her talented voice as much as I do.
