The Most Visible Face of Fairness

I am so proud of Sam & Julia Thoron, and I couldn’t wait to share the news that these phenomenal PFLAG parents are helping make history in California.

Yesterday, Sam, a past PFLAG National President who still serves on our board of directors, and his wife, Julia, became the most visible face of fairness in a battle to protect our families’ rights.

Sam and Julia are hitting the airwaves in California to urge their neighbors to vote no on Proposition 8, a November ballot initiative that seeks to roll back full marriage equality for our LGBT loved ones in the Golden State. Anti-family forces are waging an aggressive campaign to strip California families of the rights and protections they deserve and already enjoy. PFLAG is proud to stand with the Thorons, and all of our allies in California, and to be on the ground working to defeat this discriminatory initiative. Today, PFLAG is also announcing that we will be supporting our allies, like Sam and Julia, with a contribution to the campaign in California, too.

Please take a moment to watch Sam & Julia’s television ad – the first to hit the airwaves in California – here at the PFLAG blog. Then, leave a message of support for them in the comments section of our site. And if you are a California voter, visit http://www.noonprop8.com/ to pledge to vote no on November 4, and to get more information on how you can be part of the effort to end this unconscionable attack on our families.

In America, we don’t strip away rights and tell some families they are “less than” others.

Countless families, like the Thorons, are taking courageous stands and fighting for full equality. PFLAG is proud to fight alongside them, and proud to have such passionate people as part of our movement and our organization. We salute Sam and Julia, and the thousands of people working to ensure that every family is part of the American family.

Together, we can convince Californians to do the right thing and vote NO on Proposition 8.
