      Battles Ahead in the Courts, Community, and Classroom




      With public support for legalizing marriage between gay and lesbian
      couples soaring to 58 percent in recent polls, up from less than 40
      percent eight years ago,
      <http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/03/18/gay-marriage-\
      support-hits-new-high-in-post-abc-poll/> and the U.S. Supreme Court
      mulling whether to strike down California's Prop 8 and Defense of
      Marriage Act restrictions, America has clearly reached a watershed
      moment on LGBTQ rights.




      Still, marriage is defined as the union of one man and one woman in at
      least 38 states, and 32 states have added amendments to their
      constitutions banning same-sex unions, while bullying of LGBTQ students
      is reportedly on the rise
      <http://www.bullyingstatistics.org/content/bullying-statistics.html> in
      the nation's schools. Much work remains to be done.




      Panelists at the upcoming ACLU-SC Pasadena/Foothills Chapter bimonthly
      public forum on Tuesday, May 14, will recount the battle for LGBTQ
      rights in our community, discuss the impact discrimination and abuse has
      on students in local schools -- especially for youth of color, and
      outline legal challenges ahead.




      Panelists will include long-time activist Carl Matthes, President of the
      30-year-old Uptown Gay and Lesbian Alliance (UGLA); author and professor
      Sikivu Hutchinson; and ACLU-Southern California Deputy Executive
      Director James Gilliam.




      "Queer youth of color are especially vulnerable to becoming homeless,"
      observes Sikivu Huchinson. "Family economic instability, sexual abuse,
      religious dogma, discrimination at school and in local neighborhoods
      often precipitate homelessness amongst African American queer youth."
