Watch: PBS debate on marriage for same-sex couples

May 3, 2013

Last night on Insights: PBS Hawaii — just hours after Rhode Island became the 10th state to pass marriage equality — show host Dan Boylan moderated a discussion about extending marriage to same-sex couples.

The conversation was prompted by the 20-year anniversary of the Hawaii State Supreme Court’s landmark ruling that denying the freedom to marry to same-sex couples was discrimination — a ruling that reverberated across the country and paved the way for a national movement to secure the freedom to marry for same-sex couples.

The discussion included James Hochberg, Attorney and President of Hawaii Family Advocates; Steven Levinson, Retired State Supreme Court Justice; Glenn Stanton, Director of Family Formation Studies at Focus on the Family; and Renea Stewart, a filmmaker who supports marriage equality.
