Also - Please remember to use the title
"Same-Gender Consort Proposal" in the Subject line.
At the Oct 2011 Board meeting, in response to a formal request from An Tir and a substantial amount of related correspondence from our membership, we committed to crafting proposed language to allow same-gender consorts at the Crown/Coronet List level to send out for commentary. This topic is clearly emotionally charged for many people, whether for or against the change. We do not have clear direction from a majority of participants based on either the Census data or the correspondence received to date.
The Board therefore solicits commentary on the following potential language change to its governing documents in hopes of eliciting commentary and direction from the membership:
Each competitor in a Royal Lists must be fighting for a consort of the opposite gender.
Each competitor in a Royal Lists must be fighting for a consort of the opposite gender. Crowns may permit entry into the Royal Lists by same-gender couples.
Comments on this proposal are due by April 1, 2012.
Please use the title "Same-Gender Consort Proposal" in the Subject line.
