CT has marriage equality. C.T. wants same for CA

by Jeremy Hooper

Attention boys and girls: Actress Charlize Theron has requested to meet with you this Saturday:

Dear Courage Member--

We need to meet.

All of us. At 1 p.m. this Saturday, May 30.

In Fresno, the heartland of California.

Four days after the state Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8, thousands of people organized by more than 100 organizations are coming together in a major event unlike any other in the post-Prop 8 era.

Meetinmiddlebutton100-3We know the people whose lives are on the line -- those who identify as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or transgender -- will be there. But we need everyone there.

Especially straight people.

Everyone.

It's called "Meet in the Middle for Equality" and it's going to be historic. This will be a moment you don't want to miss -- an unforgettable event in the history of the movement for equal rights.

I'll be there. Will you? Please come to Fresno to "meet in the middle for equality" this Saturday. Click here to RSVP right now -- it only takes a minute:

Why Fresno?

The battle for equality has to be fought in Middle America -- in places like Fresno, California -- not just in gay-friendly cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles.

California's Central Valley population is far more reflective of national attitudes towards LGBT equality -- and until we engage the communities of Middle America, we will not achieve full equality in California.

Please come to Fresno to "Meet in the Middle for Equality." We need you. We need everyone -- especially straight allies -- to show up on Saturday. Will you?

This isn't just about California. It's about America. This isn't just about marriage. It's about human rights.

That's why I'll be there. And I hope you will as well.

See you on Saturday!

Charlize Theron

Your thoughts

She has really come to the fore here lately. She always has been a staunch supporter of same-sex marriage, but she has really stepped up lately. I wonder if that gorgeous (Stewart Townsend) boyfriend of hers is going to accompany her?

I'll be there! Taking a bus ride down there with 52 of my closest activist friends!
