STONEWALL TO HONOR STATE SENATOR KAREN PETERSON; HEAR FROM JOHN CARNEY AND CONGRESSMAN JARED POLIS
The Barbara Gittings Delaware Stonewall Democrats will honor as its 2013 "Gay Pioneer", Delaware State Senator Karen Peterson, a long-time advocate of equal rights. Peterson represents the 9th Senate District (Stanton) and spoke emotionally of her long-term relationship with her partner, Vikki, as she prepared to cast her historic vote for Marriage Equality this May. That speech was later broadcast nationally on TV, radio and blogs. Senator Peterson will be honored at Delaware Stonewall's 10th anniversary celebration on Saturday, July 20, 2013, starting at 2pm, at Mariachi Restaurant 14 Wilmington Avenue in Rehoboth Beach.
Stonewall is honored to have as its speaker Delaware Congressman John Carney and as an honored guest, out-Congressman Jared Polis from the 2nd Congressional District in Colorado.
Stonewall Members praised for helping pass Marriage Equality
Barbara Gittings Delaware Stonewall Democrats are ecstatic about the passage of marriage equality. Since its inception in 2003 we have been working towards this goal by working to elect a more equality-supportive state legislature. When we began we could not even see a non-discrimination bill get out Committee in the Senate, but we persisted and by supporting pro-equality Democrats financially and with our on the ground work we changed both Houses.
We played a major role in creating a coalition, Equality Delaware, because we knew we could not move legislation without support of non-partisan groups. We thank the leadership of Equality Delaware for putting the finishing touches on marriage equality.
Credit is also due to our membership for supporting our efforts, and without you we would not be the 11th State to get marriage equality, but it is not time for us to rest on these laurels as there are still battles to fight including making sure our transgender community is protected from discrimination as well, and certainly working to make sure none of the gains which have been made during our 10 year existence are not lost.
