Gay marriage profile: Arshad Hasan and Abbott Stark
Hasan has followed the court closely on same-sex marriage, and while he doesn’t want to be a prognosticator, he says he thinks “there's a real possibility of progress. Maybe it's a bit optimistic, but in following the case, it seemed to me that the court might go in the direction of granting full federal marriage to those states which have passed marriage or civil unions, and leave up to the remaining states the question of whether they will grant their citizens their rights. I think this opens the door to further challenges in the future, but the court prefers to punt on the big questions anyway. And, that leaves us the duty to make the public case that our families deserve the same rights as those [had] by heterosexuals." (Photo © Karen Pike/kpikephoto.com)
