Gay Marriage Vows: The Right & The Fight

June 26 was a historic day for same-sex rights in the United States.  The U.S. Supreme Court gave the nation's legally married gay couples equal federal footing with all other married Americans by striking down the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  The high court also cleared the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California by dismissing that state's Proposition 8 Amendment that banned gay marriage.  On this edition of HearSay with Cathy Lewis, a panel of guests throughout the hour will discuss the impact of the rulings on the LGBT community and what’s next for same-sex rights in Virginia and in the United States.
Scheduled Guests:
Jeff Zarrillo & Paul Katami
- Plaintiffs, California's Prop. 8 Case
Dr. Dana Heller - President, Old Dominion University Gay Cultural Studies
Jocelyn Kiley - Senior Researcher, Pew Research Center
Allison Orr Larsen - Associate Professor of Law, College of William and Mary
