  14. 14. Photo: Silence=Death Project poster 1987 President Ronald Regan did not publicly acknowledge the AIDS crisis until May 31, 1987.

Texas 539 U.S. 558 (2003) “The State cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime.” — from the majority opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy Lawrence v.

  16. 16. Obergefell v. Hodges “As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.” — from the majority opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy Photo: Rick Pluta, Michigan Radio.
