It was two years today that gay marriages became legal in California. And it was just a little over a year ago that Prop 8, which banned same sex marriages, was upheld by the California Supreme Court. A day after that, the filing challenging the constitutionally of the prop was announced and here we are on closing arguments day and we look to Karen Ocamb at LGBT POV for her guide on the Prop 8 Trial. Below are a few key items of interest that she pointed out.
