At the time, it made a hell of a lot of sense. “The door’s wide open now,” said then—San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom regarding gay marriage, after he decided to award marriage licenses to same-sex couples in the city. “It’s going to happen, whether you like it or not.” And though Proposition 8 supporters used this quote to make Newsom out as an opponent of democracy, He with the Majestic Hair was entirely correct: marriage equality is inevitable in the United States. Newsom will go down in history for his brave act, of course; this week, he and wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom (filmmaker of Miss Representation) speak in a benefit for Sonoma Mentoring Alliance on Monday, Feb. 3, at the Sebastiani Theatre. 476 First St., Sonoma. 7pm. $15—$25. 707.996.2020.
