Dear Katherine and Ann Louise,

Best of luck in your court challenge. It's not just you that's in there arguing for equality we are all there with you arguing for equality. By the way I wish to thank Ann Louise for signing my copy the book Our Lives Out Loud at the INTO LGBT conference back in October 2009.

Take care
