Happy Pride month! And what a month ahead we have! In addition to all of the wonderful festivities celebrating our community, the Supreme Court will issue its rulings in the DOMA and Prop 8 cases by month's end. The impact of these decisions will be enormous on our community. We are keeping our fingers crossed for a total victory in both cases and express our gratitude to the many lawyers who have worked so hard for all of us on them.
While we wait for the rulings, be sure to mark your calendar for the BALIF/Jones Day Pride Parade Breakfast on Sunday, June 30, 2013 from 8:30-10:30. This is a family friendly event and always a wonderful time before the SF Pride Parade.
In addition, be sure to review this week's newsletter about some of the other amazing events coming up this month including the June 11 "Being Out and In-House in 2013: Perspectives of LGBT In-House Counsel" panel and reception and the June 13 National LGBT Bar Association's Out & Proud Corporate Counsel Award Reception honoring BALIF Board Member Andrew Vu, Senior Associate Counsel of Walmart Global eCommerce.
We hope to see you there!
