Anyone reading my Bilerico posts and my blog knows that I am not a fan of fighting for access to marriage for same-sex couples. But I am certainly a fan of providing accurate, readable information to LGBT folks about the state of the law. With that in mind, I recommend to everyone a three part series of columns by law professors Joanna Grossman and Ed Stein.
Part One summarizes the history of the fight for same-sex marriage, from early challenges to the victory in Massachusetts in 2004. Part Two surveys the current legal landscape. Part Three addresses the issue of recognition of formalized same-sex relationships in states that don't afford formal recognition.
The columns pack much information into few words. Read them and learn.
