Gay dad Martin Gill, ACLU of Florida to 'celebrate the end of Florida's adoption ban' with public party Friday at Shore Club

On the ACLU of Florida website:

South Beach: Celebrate the End of Florida's Adoption Ban

Join the ACLU and our partners in the adoption campaign on Friday October 22, 2010 at the Shore Club in South Beach for a celebration honoring all of the efforts that made this decision possible—actions that uphold that a parent’s love is a parent’s love.

On September 22nd, South Florida and communities across the state celebrated the much-awaited 3rd District Court of Appeal’s decision stating that the law barring gay men and lesbian women from adopting is unconstitutional. This momentous occasion will allow ACLU plaintiff Martin Gill to adopt the two boys in his care for the past 6 years. This decision is a major victory for Martin, his family, and most importantly for thousands of children waiting to be adopted in Florida. October 22nd is the last day the state can appeal the case, and we hope you will join us to celebrate victory!

Time: 8:00PM to 10:00PM

Location: Shore Club
Beach Pool
1901 Collins Ave.
Miami Beach, FL 33139

Cost: FREE | Cash Bar and passed hors d'ouerves

First and formost I support civil and equal rights for all persons.For to long now innocent Children who need good homes have been denied. I'm thankful this is changing. Imust ask though a favor of many organizations to look into; Gay and Lesbian dead beat parents. I have for many years worked to cause change in parents not paying Child Support. I've noticed many situations in which Gay and Lesbian parents are in arrears of this much needed support. Please come out and suggest that "all" Parents, take their responsibilty seriously. Do not give persons like Bill McCollum, fuel for their hate. Please come out and ask Gay and Lesbian couples to do the right thing.
If you wish contact me and we can work together.
