Outword Talks with Mikey Partida
By Ken Pierce
Friends, co-workers and family members of Davis resident, Lawrence “Mikey” Partida, 32 all agree that Mikey is one of the sweetest and kindest persons you could ever meet. Today Partida is recovering from a brutal beating he suffered early Sunday, March 10 from the hands of his alleged attacker, Clayton Garzon, 19 of Davis.
The fact that before, during, and after the assault, gay slurs and hate speech were hurled at Partida led the Davis Police Department to investigate the incident as a hate crime. The crime has outraged the LGBT community, but support for Partida has spread far beyond the gay community.
Sacramento joined cities across the nation in demonstrations supporting Marriage Equality following the Supreme Court hearings on Tuesday, March 26 and the DOMA Hearings on March 27.
U.S. Supreme Court Hears Oral Argument in Proposition 8 Case
Washington, DC March 26, 2013 –
Today, the United States Supreme Court heard oral argument in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8. The Court is considering whether Proposition 8 violates the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Enacted in November 2008, Proposition 8 eliminated the fundamental right of gay and lesbian Californians to marry.
On December 7, 2012, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Perry to review the landmark federal court of appeals ruling that upheld the decision of the federal district court that found Proposition 8 unconstitutional. On February 28, 2013, the United States Government filed a brief as amicus curiae in support of the Plaintiffs challenging Proposition 8.
