Perry, which struck down Proposition 8 and its ban on same-sex marriage in California. Trials and Error: Same Sex Marriage on Trial. Kenji Yoshino, Dahlia Lithwick and Debra Messing with Thane Rosenbaum. The Perry trial established a factual basis for why same-sex couples should have the right to marry, and reflected the cultural shift in public opinion about the validity and dignity of such unions. Join us for a fascinating discussion with law professor, Kenji Yoshino, the author of Speak Now, about the Perry case, Dahlia Lithwick, the legal correspondent for Slate, and Debra Messing, Emmy-winning actress of the iconic comedy, "Will & Grace," which was responsible for humanizing same-sex relationships in the broader culture.
