MassEquality missives

The wife and I have gotten a few e-mails lately from the folks at MassEquality, with some ways to help the fight for marriage equality. In the interests of space, I'll just summarize them instead of cutting and pasting all the text:

-- On Monday, July 4, join MassEquality on the Charles River Esplanade and collect signatures to state reps and senators, urging them to oppose any discriminatory amendments to the constitution. E-mail IsaacMedrano@MassEquality.org.

-- Getting married? Know someone who is? NBC's "Today" show is giving away a wedding and honeymoon. Initially NBC had limited the entrants to straight couples, but after protests from GLAAD, the network changed the rules to allow same-sex couples as well. Contest rules are at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8131990/; if you enter, drop a line to Feedback@MassEquality.org.

-- Already married? Know someone who is? Write a short personal story on what marriage equality means to you, to be included in a book that will be distributed to legislators. E-mail JonMarker@MassEquality.org or 617-878-2313 with questions.

And while I'm at it, congrats to Spain for becoming the third country to legalize same-sex marriage. Hopefully Canada will become the fourth at the end of the next month.
