My name is Alexandra Frost. I believe humanity is suffering, and equal rights have slipped out of our hands, and out of our hearts. I believe we are all equal. Our hearts beat, our lungs breathe, our eyes cry, our lips smile, and above all, in each of us lies love. Who is to say what love really is, and whether it’s right or it’s wrong? Who is to say what my love can or cannot be?
On our way home from a protest one night, we got to thinking … as heterosexuals, what do we have to give up in order to fight for others' equal rights? Is it right for us to maintain the rights others do not have? Is our fight strong enough when we ourselves bathe in privileged luxury?
Saturday, November 8, 2008, three of us took a personal pledge….
“I, Alexandra Frost, pledge not to marry until every citizen is granted the right to legally wed under the Constitution of California.”
I urge you to join me in taking a stand for equality. To take this personal pledge, leave a comment with your name added to the sentence above. ☮ ♥ ☯
