W&W on the Radio: A New Date for Prop 8

President Obama stayed away from social issues in his speech last night, but the fight over same-sex marraige is once again escalating in California.

Sean Penn pushed marriage equality in his Oscar speech, Wanda Sykes taped a new PSA and litigants are getting ready for the state Supreme Court hearing of oral arguments on whether to overturn Proposition 8. 

On the latest Wilshire & Washington On the Radio, Geoff Kors, executive director of Equality California, talks about whether Hollywood helps or hurts in the debate, why Obama’s election-eve appearance on MTV may have confused voters and why the faltering economy shouldn’t delay the fight for rights.

You can listen to the show here and here.
