LGBTQ Americans have made tremendous strides toward equality in the 50 years since the pivotal Stonewall uprising. But can this momentum continue? Renowned legal scholars discuss the landmark Supreme Court cases—including Obergefell v. Hodges and Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission—and look to the critical legal battles that will be fought in the years to come.

Kenji Yoshino, author of Speak Now: Marriage Equality on Trial, is Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law at NYU School of Law. Linda Greenhouse (moderator) is Knight Distinguished Journalist in Residence and Joseph Goldstein Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School.
