Shockingly, these cases are not related directly to gay rights at all. Gregg interviews Marc Stein, author of “Sexual Injustice: Supreme Court Decisions From Griswald to Roe”. As we go through the details of three of these most important cases. One in particular, Boutilier vs. The Immigration and Naturalization Service (1967), is especially compelling. It involves someone fighting a deportation order that was given to him on the grounds that homosexuality was a form of a “psychopathic personality”. This is a great show!
