A review of Carlos A. Ball, The First Amendment and LGBT Equality: A Contentious History.


*Associate Professor, University of Colorado Law School. I am grateful for the opportunity to have discussed Professor Carlos Ball’s book, The First Amendment and LGBT Equality, with him at a book event at the New York University Bookstore on April 27, 2017, and more broadly for the mentorship Professor Ball has provided. Thanks to James Castle and Matthew Simonsen for tremendous research assistance that helped inform this Review, and to Michael Boucai, Charlie Gerstein, Ben Levin, Kate Levine, Helen Norton, Russell Robinson, and Carlos Ball himself for penetrating feedback.
