WGS professor Michael Bronski was featured in today's Harvard Gazette, where he weighed in on the Supreme Court's recent ruling to protect gay and transgender workers. Bronski, a longtime LGBT activist, calls the ruling "extraordinary" in terms of scope. “I would say it’s a bigger decision than Obergefell v. Hodges [which legalized same-sex marriage in 2015]. That was a nondiscrimination decision that affected a specific group of people, those who wanted to get married. Whereas this is a nondiscrimination decision that affects 9 million people.” The article also featured long-time WGS affiliate Timothy Patrick McCarthy of the Harvard Kennedy School.
