The LGBT Movement in the USA

[section_title title=”Where do things stand now?”]

Where do things stand now?

Today, we’re living in 2014, and a whole lot has changed since Henry Gerber started the Society for Human Rights (SHR) in 1924.

We could look at how the California Supreme Court finally nullified Proposition Eight, the state ballot measure that blocked LGBT marriage in 2003.

Or, we could talk about how some standout conservative politicians organized and signed a legal brief in 2013 that was routed to the Supreme Court, which acknowledged that all LGBT people have a constitutional liberty to marry.

All of which were vital steps that confirm the LGBT civil liberties movement is very much alive and well and still kicking in 2014.

But, let’s finish this short discussion with a very important note, in the event there are a handful of skeptics out there who are reviewing this timeline in disagreement.

On June 26, 2013, the United States Supreme Court declared that it’s unconstitutional, consequently, illegal, for any state in the union to refuse to recognize a same-sex marriage.
