The campaign to achieve recognition of gay marriage and the broader campaign to win full rights for the LGBT community will be the focus of discussion when the Center for Conflict Studies at Fitchburg State University presents Arline Isaacson, co-chair of the Massachusetts Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus. Over the course of the past decade, gay marriage has gone from being an issue that was not even a topic of discussion, to being legal in a growing number of states, thanks to activists like Arline Isaacson and others. During the talk she will discuss the challenges she faced, how those obstacles were overcome, and her thoughts on the future prospects for marriage equality nationwide.
