Manning on OPB, talking about LGTB immigration

While same-sex marriage is legal in six states and many countries around the world, same-sex bi-natoinal couples are denied the same immigration rights as opposite-sex couples.  The social, emotional, and financial costs are significant for these couples who are forced to deal with this in different ways — by applying for other kinds of visas, getting sponsorship through an employer or by leaving the U.S. to live in a country where same-sex marriage is legal.

In an episode aired today on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Think Out Loud, Stephen Manning discussed the litigation around the Defense Against Marriage Act and its implications for same-sex couples.  Check it out here.
