The Loving Decision

Loving v. Virginia looked at Virginia's antimiscegenation law (which made it a felony for a man and woman of different races to marry,) ultimately ruling that it was unconstitutional under the equal-protection clause. Now, the American LGBTQ community waits for a landmark case validating their right to form family relationships.

        "I think the day will come when the lesbian and gay community will have its own Loving v. Virginia,"

        says David Buckel, the Marriage Project director for Lambda Legal.

 

        Yes, and then the past will seem as preposterous and mean-spirited as the events leading up to the  

        Loving decision do today.
