Paul Katami, one of the heroic Team Instinct members on the road right now with AIDS/LifeCycle 11, certainly got an extra boost today in the form of the Ninth Circuit filing.
Paul, along with his partner and fellow Instinct Leading Man Jeff Zarillo, is one of the plaintiffs represented by AFER in the Perry v. Schwarzenegger Prop 8 case. Earlier today as you surely already know, the Ninth Circuit filed a major decision to once again reject Prop 8 defendants. Instinct's Jeff Katz quickly caught up with Paul somewhere along the California coast on the Ride and got nothing short of a jubilant exclusive statement (and adorable victory picture you see above!).
So, what does Paul have to say about today's filing?
"I'm just so happy right now. Three years of our lives have gone into this and at every turn Prop. 8 has suffered the consequences of being a divisive initiative, and has been denied twice in the court of law. And today's ruling takes us one step further toward full marriage equality!"
Earlier today Paul posted a video blog to the Instinct YouTube page ahead of the Ninth Circuit ruling:
