Law and Gay Rights Story

 

Walter Frank will examine the history of the modern gay rights movement in the United States and will also discuss the upcoming Supreme Court case on same sex marriage and what the impact of a favorable or unfavorable decision might be on the future direction of the movement.

Walter Frank’s most recent book, Law and the Gay Rights Story: The Long Search for Equal Justice in a Divided Democracy (Rutgers University Press, 2014) will be available for purchase.

 

Walter Frank retired from his position as Chief of Commercial Litigation for The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in April 2005. Since then he has explored the relationship of constitutional law and democracy in several law review articles. His book, Making Sense of the Constitution, was named one of the outstanding university press books for the year 2012. His most recent book, Law and the Gay Rights Story: The Long Search for Equal Justice in a Divided Democracy, has received a number of favorable reviews, including in the New York Review of Books, the Gay and Lesbian Review, Publishers Weekly Online and the Lambda Literary Review.
