AAlthough the historic majority opinion of Obergefell v. Hodges legalized same-sex marriage nationwide and the military has moved toward a “gender neutral” enlistment policy, how LGBTQ people maneuver American society continues to get worked out at every level—in schools, in courts and in the popular culture. Issues explored in this title include the role of non-traditional same-sex families, and expanded protections for transgender people under the framework of civil rights. As conservative governors sue the federal government and try to block what they call a “massive social experiment” in school bathrooms and locker rooms, and states deal with the attendant backlash, LGBTQ activists continue to force a national conversation on gender identity.
