LGBT Marriage Equality Panel
Feauturing Dr. Nathaniel Frank, author of Awakening
With Leslie Gabel-Brett and Bryan Lowder

On an historic day in 2015, the right of same-sex couples to marry was established in a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. But the story of marriage equality – and LGBT legal history – begins decades earlier, in the midst of the social and political upheavals of the 20th century, when a gay rights movement emerged with the rallying idea that same-sex love is equal to love everywhere. In celebration of the publication of Nathaniel Frank’s Awakening: How Gays and Lesbians Brought Marriage Equality to America, a definitive and full-scale history of the marriage equality movement, Greenlight hosts a panel of authors, activists, and historians to discuss the history of LGBT rights and legal issues, and the work still to be done. Panelists include Leslie Gabel-Brett, former Director of Education and Public Affairs for Lambda Legal and the co-editor of Love Unites Us: Winning the Freedom to Marry in America, and Bryan Lowder, editor of Slate magazine’s award-winning LGBTQ section Outward.
