“The South and the Battle Over LBGTQ Rights”
Tuesday, February 20, 4–5 p.m.
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery
Most of the lingering conflicts over LGBTQ rights are playing out in the South and will determine the pace of change regarding LGBTQ rights across the nation. Barth will examine the South’s latest area of defiance: the expansion of LGBTQ rights. Barth will analyze LGBTQ rights in the region examining public opinion change, the role of LGBTQ issues and actors in electoral politics, conflicts in the state legislative arena, and key state court rulings.
Admission is free, and a reception will follow the talk.
