Yeah, losing on the North Carolina stank, but Maryland needs your help.

Maryland isn't Jesse Helms country.  Same-sex marriage polls here better than in the vast majority of the states where referenda or other votes failed.  Further, Maryland has the largest out LGTB state legislative caucus in the country.

The recently-passed same-sex marriage bill will probably go to referendum in November.  This one is actually winnable.  And if North Carolina's terrible loss gets some pissed-off activists to help get out the vote up here, we'll take them.

Maryland can use your help.  Big Church money is flowing in and the other side is fairly well organized.  But we can win this one; it just won't win itself.

You want to help?  Writing a check might help.  Yard signs and literature and outreach booths won't pay for themselves; your money might help a LOT.

Good people to support:

http://www.equalitymaryland.org/ - State-wide advocacy group - they can use your MONEY.

http://www.heathermizeur.com/ - Delegate Heather Mizeur - the delegate you WISH you had in your state

There are many others - Marylanders, put the good links in the comments!

Don't just get pissed at the bigots - ruin their November in my beautiful, beloved Maryland!  Outfight, outvote, outlast!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
