Black lives matter and gays
I spent the morning of April 28, , talking to activists on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, D. The Court's Obergefell v. Hodges decision wouldn't be handed down for nearly two months; on this day, the justices were hearing the case. The plaintiffs were attempting to establish the right of same-sex couples to marry in Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee and Ohio; the marriage-equality activists who surrounded me were hoping the justices would use the Fourteenth Amendment's Equal Protection Clause not to just affirm a right to marriage in all fifty states but also to create a federal precedent under which any number of other rights for LGBT people might be argued for in the future. Despite the presence of a vocal antigay coalition—comprised of Westboro Baptist churchgoers, white supremacists, and a group of Hasidic Jews, all of whom seemed largely focused on the intimate details of anal sex—it was, for the most part, a joyous atmosphere.
