Supreme Court Gay Marriage Decision Expected Thursday

Next week, the Supreme Court will likely be deciding on two cases involving same-sex marriage: Hollingsworth v. Perry which targets Proposition 8, California’s same-sex marriage ban and United States v. Windsor, the case that will decide the constitutionality of the Defense Against Marriage ACT (DOMA). 

These decisions have the potential to bring LGBT citizens closer to experiencing the equality they deserve as American citizens. LGBT individuals as well as their allies will be on close watch next week to view what could potentially be a big move towards social progress.
