Beyond Prop 8: What's Next for the LGBT Equality Movement?

Joel Silberman and The Nation's Richard Kim discuss the implications of the Prop 8 ruling.

California's Supreme Court, in a decision this week, upheld Prop 8 and a ban on same sex marriage. At the same time, a host of states (Iowa, Vermont, and Maine) have legalized gay marriage in recent months. What's next for the LGBT movement? And should efforts to expand civil rights focus on the states or the Federal level?

Joel Silberman a media consultant and co-signer of the Dallas Principles, author and activist Jewelle Gomez, New York State Assemblyman Daniel O’Donnell, and The Nation’s Richard Kim on California’s ruling and the future of the gay rights movement.
