Things are moving quickly toward “I do” now that Washington voters have approved marriage equality, but some legal issues persist due to federal and state failures to recognize same-sex marriages. A panel including David Ward of Legal Voice, Public Interest Law Group and ACLU cooperating attorney Hank Balson, Shelbi Day of Lambda Legal, and Jill Mullins of the QLaw Foundation discusses how state and federal laws impact the realization of full marriage equality, from taxes, insurance, Social Security benefits, immigration, and parental rights to the Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the federal Defense of Marriage Act. An audience Q&A follows the discussion. Presented by the Pride Foundation.
