The Duke Journal of Gender, Law & Policy Annual Symposium: Gender Identity and Sexuality after Obergefell

March 01, 2016 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3043

The Duke Journal of Gender, Law & Policy's Symposium will discuss theories of sexuality, gender identity, and gender expression and the implications of the Supreme Court's decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. We are excited to host Scott Skinner-Thompson, Acting Assistant Professor at NYU School of Law. His research focuses on privacy and anti-discrimination, with a particular focus on LGBTQ and HIV issues. His talk, "The Straight Faces of Same-Sex Marriage," will discuss impact litigation after Obergefell. His most recent article, "Outing Privacy," was published in the Northwestern University Law Review. Scott is the editor and contributing author of AIDS and the Law (Aspen, 5th ed., 2015), one of the leading resources in the field. His shorter commentary has appeared in Slate, The New Republic, and elsewhere. In 2014, he was selected as one of the Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40 by the National LGBT Bar Association. Lunch will be served. Co-sponsored by the Duke Journal on Gender Law & Policy and OUTLaw. For more information please contact Christine Kim at
