Approve Ref. 71

Dear Editor,

My wife and I are passionate about equality. We often remark on how sad and silly it would be if we had been born different genders.

Our rights as a couple would be different in many parts of the country. Luckily, Washington already has a great domestic partnership law. Unluckily, it's under threat this fall.

Approving Ref. 71 will treat Washington's gay and lesbian families equally, preserving important protections that have a real impact on the lives of committed couples.

Join me in approving 71. It's the fair thing to do for all couples.
