Marriage Equality: From Outlaws to In-Laws
September 10, 2020 @ 7:30 pm
Virtual Event with author Christopher R. Riano
Thursday, September 10 — 7:30 pm
This panoramic and definitive history of America’s marriage equality debate explores the deeply religious, rabidly political, frequently administrative, and pervasively constitutional features of the debate and considers all angles of its dramatic history. While giving a full account of the legal and political issues, the authors 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. This is not a triumphalist or one-sided book but a thoughtful history of how the nation wrestled with an important question of moral and legal equality.
