Every June we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and in about two weeks we will celebrate the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the landmark case Obergefell v. Hodges which made marriage equality the law of the land, and while we all will never forget where we were that day when we heard the news and how we celebrated it, not as many of us are aware of the inside of story of the events that led up to that historic day. Now, in their new book Love Wins: The Lovers and Lawyers Who Fought the Landmark Case for Marriage Equality Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist Debbie Cenziper and Jim Obergefell, the plaintiff in the case, re-create the events and legal precedent that began in Cincinnati shortly after the Windsor decision and would eventually go all the way to the highest court in the land, and they join me now in studio to talk all about the book and the historic case and decision.
