Maryland Votes on Marriage Equality!

Maryland families are rejoicing today over a vote by the state Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee in favor of marriage equality. Next week the full senate will vote on the measure, which would legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland. The vote will be close, but PFLAG members are hopeful that their hard work will pay off.

Metro DC PFLAG chapter member David Fishback was interviewed by the local news station about this important step towards equality for Maryland families. Check out his interview in the second video here and see how great a job he does reminding people of the PFLAG message of family values. Also interesting and exciting to note is the interviewer’s ability to challenge Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council on his dubious research claims.
