Research conducted in the wake of marriage-law reforms is now beginning to emerge. This panel collects such research on organized LGBTQ politics in the aftermath of same-sex marriage laws, alongside one paper whose focus on the periods before and after the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the U.S. provides a useful comparison. Using a range of methodologies, these presentations examine political activists and movements, and the relationship of law to changing political attitudes.
