Lesbian Texas Judge: No Straight Weddings Until Gay Marriage is Legal
“I do not perform them because it is not an equal application of the law. Period,” Parker said, speaking to the Stonewall Democrats of Dallas this week.
And it’s kind of oxymoronic for me to perform ceremonies that can’t be performed for me, so I’m not going to do it.”
My hat is off to Parker for speaking out, considering some of the stories we’ve heard about that region.

Thank you, Tonya! We’ve got your back!
Do you think Parker’s decision will influence future legislation? Do you incorporate activism into your every day life? Are you inspired to do so after reading stories like this?
