mine laws prohibiting discrimination based on
sexual orienta tion and gender identity.
Their strategy is to argue that people who dis-
criminate against LGBT people do so because
their religious beliefs require them to do so. Their
question to the court is, "What rules? The First
Amendment guarantee of free exercise of religion
or the equal protection clause that says all citizens
should be treated equally under the law?"
One case has already reached the U.S. Supreme
Court and failed, but other cases — many other
cases — are winding their way through nearly
every circuit in the country. And their outcomes
have the potential to chip away at the strength of

• A fight for the White House: The difference
for LGBT people between having President
Barack Obama in the White House and President
George W. Bush has been stark. So the conse-
quences of November's presidential election will
also be profound.
Either Obama stays, and things continue to im-
prove — in law and in society's attitudes — or a
new president is/elected from a field of Republi-
cans who seem, at times, to be vying for the man-
tle of most gay-hostile candidate.

progress to halt or backslide.

stitutional and would not argue for its defense in
Another big story that no one expected: The
Obama administration announced a major new
diplomatic mission to push for protection of
human rights for LGBT people around the world.
And given that Rep. Frank said in January 2011
he'd run for re-election in 2012, it was a surprise,
in November, when he announced that he would
not. As Frank pointed out, circumstances change.
Circumstances change, things change, people
change. And often, they change each other.
But history marches on through time, and only
in retrospect can any trajectory be certain as to
where it's going. ■
