Western Delegate for TBA's LGBT Section Maureen Holland recently participated in an interview with NPR regarding how President Trump's replacement for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy could affect the court's view on same-sex marriage. Justice Kennedy surprised many when he sided with the plaintiffs in Obergefell v. Hodges, for which he authored the majority opinion stating that the constitution protects the right to marry for same-sex couples across the country, and that these couples did not diminish the idea of marriage. Some LGBT proponents have concerns that Justice Kennedy's replacement may take a more regressive view on these issues. You can listen to the interview here.
