Illegal Love: Tim Bostic on Politics, Religion and Marriage Equality
6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Tim Bostic, one of the plaintiffs in the case against the state of Virginia's ban on same-sex marriage, will speak at Virginia Wesleyan on Thursday, October 23 from 6-8 p.m. in Blocker Auditorium. In July 2013, Bostic and his partner, Tony London, sought to obtain a marriage license at the Norfolk Circuit Court but were turned down. The couple filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court and on February 13, 2014, the court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs declaring that laws prohibiting gay and lesbian couples from marrying are unconstitutional. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the decision in a ruling handed down in July, but shortly after the Supreme Court granted an emergency request to stay the mandate, preventing marriages from taking place until further appeal. In his presentation, Bostic will share his experience as a gay man, how he came to be a part of the lawsuit and what it has meant to him. The event will also include an open Q&A session. This presentation is co-sponsored by the VWC History Department, the Women's Center, the Center for the Study of Religious Freedom and the Office of Student Activities.
