Victory In Virginia: Tracy Thorne-Begland To Become First Gay District Judge!


Chief Judge Richard Taylor handed down a monumental decision this week, appointing Virginia Tracy Thorne-Begland the first gay district court judge in the state's history!

Judge Taylor's decision flies in the face of weeks of Republican opposition, with lawmakers like Robert Marshall condemning Thorne-Begland as an "aggressive activist" and arguing his sexuality made him incapable of being an objective judge.

It is a courageous decision. It is a historic one. But it is not enough.

Already, forces within the Assembly are moving to oppose Judge Taylor's decision. If we don't speak out now, history will only repeat itself--and Tracy won't have a chance to change it!

Let Virginia know our support for Judge Taylor's decision, and spread the news of Tracy Thorne-Begland's appointment to everyone you know. Take up the call: Thank Judge Taylor for his decision NOW!
