More than 50 legal scholars today strongly urged President Obama to resist calls for an overly broad religious exemption in a proposed executive order prohibiting sexual orientation and/or gender identity discrimination by federal contractors. The effort is being spearheaded by Columbia Law School’s Center for Gender and Sexuality Law, as part of its recently launched […]

My remarks at a recent gathering at UCLA Law School recognizing the 40th anniversary of Roe and the 10th anniversary of Lawrence. Liberty, Equality & Sexual Freedom: A View from 29 Palms Katherine Franke[1] The occasion to reflect on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade[2] and the 10th anniversary of Lawrence v. Texas[3] at […]

Katherine Franke talks to Wisconsin Public Radio for an hour about what we should take from the prominence of gay rights in President Obama’s inauguration speech.  Listen here.

LUBLIN And DANA MATTIOLI The legalization of gay marriage in New York […]

From today’s New York Times (and the headline wasn’t my choice, I preferred Marriage: It’s Complicated).  It’s hysterical that the Times is running ads for diamond wedding rings right above the Op-ed.
