I’m excited and even stunned to announce one of the proudest accomplishments of my career.
The current issue of Newsweek features a cover story called “The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage,” written by George Bush’s lawyer, Ted Olson. Olson is a conservative who represented Bush in the Bush v. Gore Supreme Court case, and helped him win the 2000 election. David Boies was the liberal attorney who represented Al Gore in that case.Despite their opposing political views, Olson and Boies have teamed this week in a landmark challenge against Proposition 8. Their goal is to end California’s ban on gay marriage. The trial began yesterday, and is expected to be appealed and eventually presented to the Supreme Court.Ted Olson’s cover story in Newsweek presents a clear, logical, and compelling discussion of why all Americans should support gay marriage, regardless of political affiliation or religious background.
One of my photographs of Karen and Jacynda’s wedding appears on page 50. I am deeply honored that my photograph was chosen to be included in such a significant article, especially one written by one of the most influential people in the gay rights movement.You can read the article here: The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage – Newsweek.com (note: my photo does not appear in the online version).
Thank you, Newsweek, for giving me an opportunity to be a part of such a great article. Thank you, Jacynda and Karen, for sharing your love story. And thank you to my friends and family who rushed to the store today to buy the magazine!
