Prop 8 Trial Re-enacted On Internet

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, February 2, 2010
Two Los Angeles-based filmmakers have used transcripts and professional actors to help recreate the trial. The first of a dozen episodes has just been posted on YouTube:

Female voice: “Proponents say gay rights…”
Male voice: “What is the evidence of harm to the state?”
Female voice: “You’ll hear about hate crimes linked to the attitudes of the proponents.”
Male voice: “What’s that got to do with Proposition 8?”
Female voice: “I’m trying to tell you.”

John Ireland is one of the filmmakers. He says the goal is to allow Americans to judge the constitutionality of Proposition 8.

California voters approved the initiative in 2008…banning same-sex marriage. Ireland opposes the ban.

Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked a plan to have testimony in the trial uploaded to YouTube…saying it could subject supporters of Prop 8 to harassment.
