Gay Rights on Lehigh Valley Discourse

The human rights issue of our time is not just the tolerance of gays and lesbians in our society but their acceptance as citizens with all the rights of anyone else. The campaign's pace has accelerated with each new victory. This Valentine's Day it seems appropriate that we explore the progress gays and lesbians have made. Alan Jennings's guests are Liz Bradbury, who is probably the best known activist in the region, and whose efforts go back 30 years, and Adrian Shanker who, in his mid-twenties, is experiencing life far differently than Liz did. The show will explore the new world gay and lesbian activists have created, including having the right to marry and all the legal rights marriage brings with it.
