Prop 8

May 14, 2014

marchers holding signs that reads "Marriage is a civil right" and "church/state"The QS Program views Prop 8 as a discriminatory proposition that took away the constitutional right to marry from same sex couples in California. While we recognize and respect the diverse critiques of marriage as an institution, we see the passage of Prop 8 as motivated by homophobia and encourage its repeal.  We also encourage protestors against Prop 8 not to target specific ethnic communities, but to recognize that large numbers of Californians of all ethnicities voted both for and against Prop 8.

Below are links to video shot by Prof. Ian Barnard (QS faculty) from the wave of protests against Prop 8.
