Louisiana Public Square

Louisiana Public Square: Gay in Louisiana

Airs Sunday, September 15 at 6 p.m.  The U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act in June will allow some federal benefits for same-sex couples that were legally married elsewhere but live in Louisiana. But what other impact will it have in the state? Louisiana passed a constitutional amendment in 2004 that defines marriage as "between one man and one woman" and denies the recognition of gay unions. In light of the High Court’s decision, could Louisiana’s Defense of Marriage Amendment be challenged? Does Louisiana’s current position on gay marriage threaten the recruitment of employers to the state? And do legislative attempts to recognize gay rights achieve equal protection at the expense of another’s religious freedom? Louisiana Public Square pursues the answers to these questions and more when it explores the issues involved when you’re “Gay in Louisiana.”
