Why does Portland lag behind Des Moines on marriage equality issues?
When will same sex couples finally get full rights in Oregon?
How can we push for gay rights without inflaming a Measure 36-like bigot backlash?

What better way to answer these questions than during a (not quite binding) big fat gay wedding? Join the Merc, youth politics group The Bus Project and Basic Rights Oregon next Tuesday night at Backspace for a gay wedding with very special officiant Sam Adams.

That's right! Watch Mayor Adams join two queer activists in mock union while you get the rundown from Adams and other civil rights leaders on what's up with same sex marriage in Oregon.
