The first annual Rainbow Lecture on LGBTQI issues will feature William Eskridge, Jr., John A. Garver Professor of Jurisprudence, Yale Law School. Eskridge has defended same-sex marriage both in the court room and as a scholar. Among his many publications, he co-authored the leading casebook on sexuality issues in law, "Sexuality, Gender, and the Law," as well as the important monograph, "Gaylaw: Challenging the Apartheid of the Closet." Eskridge’s most recent book, "Gay Marriage: For Better or For Worse?," examines gay marriage and society in Scandinavia, where gay couples have been able to marry since 1989.
