Despite reaching unprecedented levels of equality and acceptance in 2013, there is still much to be done. CHLP's Legal Director will discuss the victories the LGBT and HIV community should look towards in the next 25 years, and how we can build on the success of the past to achieve full equality in the future. Other panelists include Jennifer Pizer, Director of Lambda Legal's Law & Policy Project; Shannon Minter, the Legal Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights; and Prof. William Eskridge of Yale Law School.
