Boston Review program on the future of marriage available online

In March, I spoke on a panel sponsored by Boston Review. It is now available online here. Harvard historian Nancy Cott, known for her expert testimony in the California litigation challenging the constitutionality of Prop 8, was the primary speaker. (You can read the transcript of her testimony in the Perry litigation by going to this website and clicking on days 1 and 2 of the transcript). If you have not followed her assessment of the history of marriage and why allowing same-sex couples to marry is consistent with that history, this talk is a concise summary of her work. Other speakers were Mary Bonauto of GLAD, Michael Bronski, and an opponent of marriage equality.

It was especially interesting to me that more than one audience member challenged the panelists to think about arrangements other than couples. Audience questions and our responses are included on the video.

I appreciate how some states in the country now recognizes gay marriages. This is the major concerns of members posting their comments on adult friend finder review, afraid not to be accepted by a lot of us.
