Summary
The fascinating and very moving story of the lovers, lawyers, judges and activists behind the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that led to one of the most important, national civil rights victories in decades -- the legalization of same-sex marriage. Twenty years ago, Jim Obergefell and John Arthur fell in love in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2013 Jim and John -- who was dying from ALS -- flew to Maryland, where same-sex marriage was legal. But back home, Ohio refused to recognise their union, or even list Jim's name on John's death certificate. Then they met Al Gerhardstein, a courageous attorney who had spent nearly three decades advocating for civil rights and who now saw an opening for the cause that few others had before him. This forceful and deeply affecting narrative chronicles how this grieving man and his lawyer, against overwhelming odds, introduced the most important gay rights case in U.S. history. It is an urgent and unforgettable account that will inspire readers for many years to come
