California's Proposition 8 - Allies Are The Key To Stopping It But LGBT Organizations Are Failing To Attract Them With Tired Strategies

Meyers, Cheri

Outlook Weekly;9/11/2008, Vol. 13 Issue 11, p4
The author comments on the Garden Wedding advertisement by Let California Ring which asks what if someone could not marry the person he or she loved. She remarks that this multi-million-dollar advertisement, which attracts youth voters who are thought to be most likely support same-sex marriage, does not have an impression on her to link it to the upcoming ballot initiative. She stresses that since every GLBT organization is asking for contributions to help stop Proposition 8 in California, this commercial is not a wise use of resources.
