Countless words have been written on why the GLBT community lost the Proposition 8 battle. Here are two articles that I think offer perspectives that are worth reading – particularly in light of the California Supreme Court hearing this issue.
The first one is by the consultants who ran the “Yes On 8” campaign. It is in Politics Magazine. There are important lessons in their critique of why they defeated us.
The second commentary is by Matt Foreman (Pictured), formerly the executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and now with the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund. He argues that passing Prop. 8 was always an uphill battle.
We hope you will weigh in with your own comments, suggestions and ideas on moving forward.
