WVU College of Law Hosts Gay Rights Talk

Posted: Updated:

West Virginia University College or Law hosted a talk Monday evening about the future of gay rights.

Guest speaker and Supreme Court lawyer Paul Smith talked about the legal battle for gay rights. Specifically, he talked about two Supreme Court cases involving Proposition 8 in California and the Defensive of Marriage act.

Smith said gay rights are changing very fast.

"It's heading very fast towards much greater acceptance. Public opinion is changing very dramatically. We have marriage rights, marriage equality is spreading to more states. It may well be national if the Supreme Court goes all the way this year," Smith said.

Smith also says there's a need for more on work and employment discrimination.
