Three years ago today, the #Obama administration lit up the #WhiteHouse in #rainbow colors to celebrate #marriageequality. While that historic day was hailed as an achievement for #civilrights, we have a ways to go in accomplishing full federal protections for #LGBTQ people. No matter who sits in the Oval Office, HRC will work tirelessly to make our union a more inclusive and fair place for all.

Hinshaw's LGBTQ Affinity Network presents “Can LGBTQ People Have their Cake and Eat it,Too? What the Supreme Court REALLY said.” The presentation will take a closer look at Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a pivotal case from earlier this month in which the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the perspective of supporting same-sex marriage against the perspective of supporting religious liberty and ultimately sided with the Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding. The Court decided 7-2 that a Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruling against Jack Phillips violated his First Amendment “free exercise” rights. The Supreme Court’s opinion was by no means a wide-ranging ruling on religious liberty. As in many cases, the devil’s in the details and Vincent Rizzo will explain why as he examines this case during the presentation.
