This summer, GLAD attorneys and national LGBTQ movement leaders are offering Justice HangOUTs, a series of 30-minute interactive events to give you the information you need about the issues you care about.
Missed a past HangOUT? No problem. Check out the recordings below.
“The Next Big LGBTQ Case at the Supreme Court: Fulton v. City of Philadelphia” with Gary Buseck, Legal Director
Can a religiously-based organization providing social services and receiving funding for those services under a government contract be exempted from the municipality’s non-discrimination laws? Many religious organizations and conservative activists are hoping the answer is “yes.” The stakes are high: the law could potentially change significantly and many voices have weighed in on both sides with friend-of-the-court briefs. Join GLAD’s Legal Director Gary Buseck will discuss those briefs and answer key questions about the potential impacts of the case on a wide range of government-funded services.
“What’s Stigma Got to Do With It?: The Ongoing Fight Against Anti-Gay, Anti-Trans, and HIV-related Bias” with Bennett Klein, Senior Attorney and AIDS Law Project Director
From blocked access to PrEP, to denials of transgender people’s identities, to the blood donation ban, we’re still fighting stereotypes that harm both LGBTQ people and public health. Join GLAD’s attorney Bennett Klein – the lawyer who secured nondiscrimination protections for people living with HIV under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) at the U.S. Supreme Court – to hear how we’re using the law to turn the tide against persistent stigma.
“Obergefell @ Five: The Historic Marriage Ruling and What’s Next” with Mary L. Bonauto, Civil Rights Project Director
Five years ago on June 26, the White House (and everyone’s social media feeds) were lit up in rainbows to celebrate the historic Obergefell ruling that brought marriage equality to the entire U.S. How are we doing five years later? What’s changed since 2015? And what lies ahead? Find out from Mary L. Bonauto – the attorney who argued the landmark case before the Supreme Court – in this unique opportunity to go behind the scenes for the questions and even some answers.
Stay tuned for more upcoming HangOUTS!
