including Susan Sommer, Associate Legal Director and Director of Constitutional Litigation for Lambda Legal,
James Esseks, Director of the ACLU Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender & HIV Project, Cara Page, Executive Director of the Audre Lorde Project, and journalist Mark Harris, whose marriage to Tony Kushner was the first same-sex marriage to be featured in the NY Times’ “Vows” column, will discuss them past, present, and future of the fight for equality.
