A decade of U.S. marriage equality begins in Massachusetts:
the historic ruling, the reaction, and the politics
(an expanded edition of "NewsWrap”, with on-scene sound,
from "This Way Out" in late November 2003);
Genderqueer writer and activist Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore
discusses the perils of assimilation and "The End of San Francisco"

- 10 Years of U.S. marriage equality: from "NewsWrap" on the "This Way 
Out" program of 11/24/03, anchored by CINDY FRIEDMAN & JON BEAUPRÉ: a
 review of the historic "Goodridge versus Department Of Public Health" 
ruling announced on November 18th by the MASSACHUSETTS SUPREME JUDICIAL 
COURT declaring that "barring an individual from the protections, 
benefits and obligations of civil marriage solely because that person 
would marry a person of the same sex violates the Massachusetts 
Constitution." Includes comments by some of the seven gay and lesbian 
plaintiff couples who filed the original lawsuit challenging the ban on 
same gender marriages in the state, GLORIA BAILEY & LINDA DAVIES, 
MIKE HORGAN, and HILLARY & JULIE GOODRIDGE; attorney MARY BONAUTO 
from Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, the group that represented
 them; Massachusetts Republican GOVERNOR MITT ROMNEY; Democratic 
MASSACHUSETTS STATE REPRESENTATIVE PHIL TRAVIS; and openly gay U.S. 
CONGRESSMEMBER from MASSACHUSETTS BARNEY FRANK (written by CINDY 
FRIEDMAN, with thanks to GRAHAM UNDERHILL, REX WOCKNER, FENCEBERRY, and 
GREG GORDON).

- The freedom to be oneself drew thousands of young LGBT and other 
disenfranchised people to SAN FRANCISCO in the late 1960's and early 
70's. A growing number of LGBT young people these days are challenging 
traditional concepts of gender and sexuality. San Francisco-based writer
 and activist MATTILDA BERNSTEIN SYCAMORE has been "genderqueer" for a 
number of years. Our STEVE PRIDE chatted recently with Sycamore about 
his latest book, "THE END OF SAN FRANCISCO" [City Lights], and the 
perils of assimilation.
