What the case is about and why it is so critical

We dreamed of healing a judiciary that has taken a hard turn toward mean.

Today’s arguments were radically anti-LGBTQ

Three possible decisions — one of them bad, one of them destructive

Yesterday’s elections have ground-shifting consequences even if Biden ekes out a victory

Today, we dial back our hopes

It’s time to retrench and re-strategize

The courts have opposed us before, and we still won acceptance and equality. New strategies do not mean giving in to despair. It’s time to fight!
