By next week Wednesday, LA Pride will have come and gone, but the current issue surrounding equality will still be in question. Today the federal court released the schedule for closing arguments in Perry v. Schwarzenegger, the case that is challenging the constitutionality of Prop 8, the ban on gay marriage in California. Here's the June 16th schedule, according to LGBT POV:

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM Plaintiffs (argued by Ted Olson and David Boies)

11:30 AM - 11:45 AM City and County of San Francisco

11:45 AM - 12:00 PM Governor, Attorney General and county defendants
