Vote NO in NOvember!

It's time to stand up, to vote, and be counted. It's time to do the right thing for all Americans. It's time to look out for all families.

Vote NO on Amendment 1!

This is the proposed constitutional amendment that Tennessee voters will consider on November 7th, 2006:

The historical institution and legal contract solemnizing the relationship of one man and one woman shall be the only legally recognized marital contract in this state. Any policy or law or judicial interpretation, purporting to define marriage as anything other than the historical institution and legal contract between one man and one woman, is contrary to the public policy of this state and shall be void and unenforceable in Tennessee. If another state or foreign jurisdiction issues a license for persons to marry and if such marriage is prohibited in this state by the provisions of this section, then the marriage shall be void and unenforceable in this state.

Our goal is to ensure the proposed amendment is defeated.


Notice the language attacking alternative legal contracts, policies, and laws. That's what's dangerous about this amendment. Visit the website and learn more about why this amendment is a problem for all Tennesseans.

Just stopping in to say Hi Callie!

We could be looking at a good November. Maybe some of the ignorance is waning. Fingers crossed.

The language of the amendment is not exactly clear. It would appear that it would ban gay marriage, polygamy, and bigamy all in one. Because the opposite of this amendment would allow all three.

OT Sorry.

Please call me a GIRL!!!!
A few weeks ago I got into a heated discussion with a fellow gay male. His only response to my witty retorts was "You are such a GIRL". I kept saying "THANK YOU!" and he never got it!

A few years ago I volunteered working with second grade students helping them with reading and math skills. One day there was a big fuss made over one student calling another student a "GIRL". My respsonse was "Wow! Girls are wonderful, powerful, kind, funny, friendly and amazing, you can call me a girl anytime!!!" The second graders got it. From that point on being called a girl in that classroom was considered a compliment.

I am a gay male who NEVER thinks the word GIRL is an insult. Too bad Aravosis doesn't get it.
