Photography: Gay Male, Pre-Stonewall Photography: Gay Male, Pre-Stonewall
Although sparse in images documenting the gay community, pre-Stonewall gay male photography blurs the boundaries between art, erotica, and social history.

Suze Orman.

On February 21, 2013 financial advisor, author, and television host Suze Orman chaired a panel discussion at New York University on the economic harms of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and marriage inequality generally.

The panel, which was sponsored by the Respect for Marriage Coalition, was held at New York University, and included, in addition to Orman, Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee, law firm partner-in-charge Nanette Lee Miller, and couples from Maryland and New York. They focused on the economic implications of barring same-sex couples from accessing the full legal rights and benefits of marriage.

The Respect for Marriage Coalition includes over 80 organizations working to protect the rights of same-sex couples.

Orman has become increasing vocal in her support for same-sex marriage and has frequently decried the financial losses incurred by surviving same-sex partners due to marriage inequality. She recently devoted multiple episodes of her CNBC television show to the financial issues faced by same-sex couples.

Orman came out publicly as a lesbian in a February 2007 interview with the New York Times Magazine, in which she acknowledged her relationship with her long-time partner, Kathy Travis. She and Travis subsequently married in South Africa in 2010.

In the video below from January, Orman explains her concern with the lack of federal recognition of same-sex relationships.

In the video below, Orman and Governor Chafee appear on Thomas Roberts's MSNBC show to discuss the NYU panel discussion.
