Deutsch Kerrigan Celebrates PRIDE Month

June 2024

Deutsch Kerrigan celebrates PRIDE month this June, in honor and recognition of the civil and legal equality of gay and lesbian Americans – now broadened to include all persons within the acronym LGBTQIA+ in America. The struggle was not easy. And there were casualties, as the history of gay liberation shows, from the beginnings of civil resistance with the Mattachine Society in 1950, through Stonewall in 1969, through the AIDS epidemic in the 80’s and 90s. But social acceptance has largely been obtained, with the Supreme Court’s 2015 landmark decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that recognizes and upholds the constitutional right of same-sex couples to marry.

Deutsch Kerrigan welcomes diversity and invites all to join us and stand with us in celebration of our partners and associates, our family members and friends, our clients and business associates, and our colleagues and judges who encompass the rainbow of humanity.
