The marriage debate in the U.S. occupied center stage in mainstream LGBTQ politics for over a decade, becoming synonymous with “gay rights” for much of the general public. Last year’s Supreme Court decision thus has implications for the finances, operations, structure, and mission of all the diverse organizations and groups in this country that do LGBTQ-related work. In this panel, activists and scholars share their different perspectives on these shifts.
