Left of Center: Dyana Mason of Equality Virginia on the gay marriage amendment

In addition to selecting representatives to Congress in this fall’s election, Virginians will also decide whether to amend the state Constitution to define marriage between one man and one woman.

But the Commonwealth Coalition says the amendment may do much more than that and may change the way in which all contracts are treated under the law. The Coalition is made up of groups across the state opposed to the amendment, including Equality Virginia, a gay rights organization. Dyana Mason is Equality Virginia’s executive director.

Mason spoke to a group called Left of Center on September 5th to discuss why she thinks Virginians should vote no in November. Left of Center is a group of twenty and thirty somethings in Charlottesville.
