Three Lessons from the Midterm Election Results for LGBT Equality
November 6, 2014
Although likely disheartening for many Towleroad readers, the 2014 election results may offer both tests and even some opportunities on our long journey to equality. The media postmortem today is pretty standard: some are calling it a Republican "wave"; thoughtful pieces are reminding us that such a conclusion is a bit over the top. Some are fawning over how the Republicans did it, others are reminding us that it was a lot of money, a lot of fear, a dash of Ebola, a whole lot of nonsense, and a health dose of Obamizing local races. Chris Johnson has a fine piece up at the Washington Blade on what the election may mean for LGBT equality. more . . . .
 
Five Antigay Nightmares That Will Happen Now That Republicans Control Congress
November 5, 2014
Midterm elections are rarely favorable to the President's party and, true to history, the Democrats took a beating on Election Day. Republicans picked up enough seats to gain control of the Senate, which means that come next year, Congress could be entirely in the control of Republicans. That makes President Obama the sole firewall against a conservative onslaught. Here are five antigay issues that are bound to arise now that the GOP has full rein of Congress. more . . . .
 
The Real Enemy of Marital Bliss
October 26, 2014
Although there are a few Flat-Earthers out there who still believe gay marriage can be stopped, everyone else has accepted (or celebrated) it as an eventual inevitability. So now the question is: what's next? Not just what's next for LGBT equality--but also, what's next for marriage? more . . . .
 
Judy and Dennis Shepard on Marriage Equality in Wyoming
October 24, 2014
WE NEVER thought we'd see marriage equality come to Wyoming in our lifetime. But in a wave of judicial rulings allowing same-sex couples to marry across the country, this week a federal court ruling granted our neighbors the opportunity to make history at the altar. The lives and rights of LGBT people in the "Equality State" are rarely thought about without reflection on the 1998 hate-crime murder of our 21-year-old son Matthew. His abduction, beating, and death changed the way this country and the world responded to anti-gay hate, eventually leading to a federal hate-crime law that bears his name. more . . . .
 
A Procedural Rule Could Keep Any Future Marriage Equality Case From the US Supreme Court
October 21, 2014
One of the great benefits of the marriage equality debate is that it has forced Americans to learn way more about constitutional law than they probably ever wanted to. In just a few years, terms like "heightened scrutiny" and "liberty interest" have wriggled their way into the demotic parlance, to my unceasing delight. But the schooling, it seems, will not end at the 14th Amendment, because Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne just cited a rule of civil procedure in refusing to defend his state's ban on same-sex marriage. And if his theory is correct, opponents of marriage equality may be procedurally barred from ever getting a gay marriage case to the Supreme Court again. more . . . .
