After DOMA: What’s Next for Queer Utah?

Salt Lake City — On Wednesday June 26th the United States Supreme Court ruled that a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional.  The Court also ruled that the defendants of  California’s Proposition 8 had no standing, effectively re-opening the doors for gay marriage in the state.  LGBT activists in Utah welcomed the news with celebration and a hope for more progress to come.  But what, if any impact, will these decision have in Utah, which has an amendment to the state’s constitution denying recognition of any gay unions?  We hear from LGBT advocates Michelle Turpin, Jesse Nix and Bruce Bastian on the day of the ruling — and welcome attorneys Paul Burke and Cliff Rosky to the station to discuss the ruling and possible next steps for LGBT rights in Utah and the nation.
