We call this installment of the LGBT Bar NY podcast: “Waiting for cake.” That’s because SCOTUS seems to be saving room for desert as the justices turn their nose up at several big LGBT legal entrees.
The Court already granted review in the “gay wedding cake” case from Colorado, but passed over an employment discrimination case, a license to discriminate case, a trans rights case and a resisting-Obergefell case. We will begin by chatting about a few of these cases with Professor Art Leonard of New York Law School. Art is the chief editor and writer of LGBT Law Notes, the most comprehensive monthly publication covering the latest legal and legislative developments affecting the LGBT community
here and abroad.
Then I will speak with Art about the flurry of LGBT rights related activity from overseas. Lastly, we will chat about a really important NY parenting case with our legal director, Brett Figlewski.
And of course the LGBT Bar on NY is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. So we have a very special “Of Note” segment where we will asking
our founder about what it was like to hold the very first LGBT Bar Assoc of NY meeting in his living room all those many decades ago.
