Looking back on New Paltz's "Winter of Love"

On this week’s 51%, we brush up on the history of marriage equality in the U.S., and look back on the first same-sex weddings in New Paltz, New York — which took place more than a decade before the Supreme Court legalized marriage equality nationwide. We also hear from psychoanalysts Avgi Saketopoulou and Ann Pellegrini about their book Gender Without Identity, proposing a new way of looking at how life shapes everyone’s experience with gender.

Guests: Avgi Saketopoulou and Ann Pellegrini, authors ofGender Without Identity
