What's your agenda? Tune in Wednesdays from 8-9 pm EST as your host James Hipps, the managing editor of gayagenda.com brings you the latest in LGBT news and issues with special guest. Tonight we'll be speaking with Mr. Fowler, a California attorney who was married to his partner during the short window of opportunity when lesbian and gay couples were allowed to wed in California. According to TWIT.com: Gay, newlywed and a new father, Christopher C. Fowler—attorney at Los Angeles-based business law firm Rutter Hobbs & Davidoff Incorporated—is personally and deeply invested in the current case’s outcome. Fowler and his husband were one of 18,000 couples to wed within the six-month window when same-sex marriage was legal in California. Then, on Nov. 4, 2008—the same day Proposition 8 passed—while out campaigning against the ballot measure, Fowler learned that they’d been matched with the birthparents of their future son. “I am cautiously optimistic that Judge Walker will decide that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, that its creators sponsored the ballot measure out of animus to the LGBT community. Under several important United States Supreme Court cases, Prop. 8 is in violation of U.S. constitutional law, withholding a basic, fundamental, legal right to which every American is entitled—gay or straight.” - Christopher C.
