LGBTQ In Hampton Roads Today

Virginia's same-sex marriage ban was ruled unconstitutional last week in the first such decision by a federal appellate court in the South. The Virginia lawsuit that brought about the ruling was filed by two same-sex couples, including Timothy Bostic and Tony London of Norfolk, who had been denied a marriage license. The ruling is the latest several developments in the LGBTQ community's pursuit of equal rights under the law. On this edition of HearSay with Cathy Lewis, a panel of guests throughout the hour will discuss the movement and also how it will be a part of a large celebration, PrideFest 2014, coming up on August 23rd at Norfolk's Town Point Park.
