Marriage Equality: 2020 and Beyond (Webinar)
As a legal scholar who first argued in the early 1990s for a right to gay marriage, William N. Eskridge Jr. has been on the front lines of the debate over same-sex marriage for decades. Liz Benjamin will moderate a panel that consists of Eskridge and Christopher R. Riano, who offer a panoramic and definitive history of America’s marriage equality debate.
The panelists explore the deeply religious, rabidly political, frequently administrative, and pervasively constitutional features of the debate and consider all angles of its dramatic history. While giving a full account of the legal and political issues, the panelists never lose sight of the personal stories of the people involved, or of the central place the right to marry holds in a person’s ability to enjoy the dignity of full citizenship.
