Separate is Not Equal

On Monday, May 14, Senior Attorney Ben Klein will present oral arguments before the Connecticut Supreme Court in GLAD's case Kerrigan and Mock v. Connecticut Dept. of Public Health. The case challenges Connecticut's exclusion of lesbian and gay couples from full marriage equality.

For the first time, GLAD will be reporting on the proceedings live from the courthouse, here at our new blog created especially for this occasion. Check in with us starting at 10am on Monday for full coverage.

Since this is our first experiment with blogging at all - not to mention live from a courthouse - we expect that things won't go completely smoothly, so bear with us. But this case is so important we couldn't pass up the opportunity to bring you play-by-play coverage, along with a little GLAD commentary.

You will also be able to view a live webcast of the proceedings at
www.ct-n.com.


So, join us on Monday, join in the conversation, and give us your feedback - as GLAD argues for equality for all Connecticut citizens.

This is a great idea for GLAD. I am into blogging and will be following this.

This is important to us as we want to have the word "marriage" for our family. We have a current "civil union" in CT and we are finding out how it really isn't equality.

There are so many hetero couples that we talk to and read about that are choosing not to get married until we as GLBT citizens have the right to get married just like they do.

We write about these topics every day and advise the GLBT community on their options and choices. As well as educating the "Heteroflexable" community about the fact that we are all one and the same we love who we love.

We teach everyone by the motto that you cannot be accepted until you are accepting yourself.
Thank you Gladd for stepping up and keeping us informed on this landmark case. We will be reporting on this case from afar for our readers as well.

Great work all around, and I'll be looking forward to following the proceedings. I keep waiting for the day when courts and the legislature realize that all of this is a civil rights issue, hence it is their responsibility to ensure legal protection for the LGBT community. I hope tomorrow will be an instance where the courts open their eyes. Good luck!
