The community Live Long and Marry was created on LiveJournal on June 20, 2008 by Rachel Manija Brown and Lady Ganesh, in response to Proposition 8 in California. Its aim was to battle the proposition by donating the auction's proceeds to organizations that fight for the right of same-sex couples to marry.
From the profile of the comm:
- What's the cause?
- The auction will raise money for the fight against the California initiative which will legally destroy existing same-sex marriages and ban any further ones. If the initiative passes, it will write discrimination into the state constitution, annull existing marriages, and make Mr. Sulu cry.
- How can I help?
- You can bid on fanfic, original fic, vids, cookies, memorabilia, critique/betas, and much more! Or you can offer your skills and services as a writer, vidder, baker, knitter, or whatever else you'd like.
