Equality Loudoun and Unitarian Universalists of Sterling Church have partnered for an evening of poetry in order to provide concerned gays and lesbians in Loudoun County a forum to speak out against what they believe is an unjust law.
The two groups have invited gays, lesbians, bisexuals, the transgendered community and their friends to share their thoughts about life and love during the “Virginia Is For Lovers” poetry slam June 29 in order to fight against HB 751, better known as the Marriage Affirmation Act. The act was passed by the Virginia General Assembly earlier this year and will take effect July 1.
