August 1, 2011 — Recently, gay couples were selected by lottery to be among the first to legally marry in the Empire State. This mass declaration of love and honor not only made history, but it opened the door a little further for others toying with the idea of marital bliss and protections.

Dr. Dan Gottlieb explores conversations about same sex marriage within the gay community. There’s excitement and ambivalence – together we learn why. Dan’s guests include Angela Giampolo, Esq., Joe Kort, Ph.D. and two local couples who are crafting strong domestic relationships. They’ll share their love stories.

Angela Giampolo is an attorney with the Giampolo Law Group. She blogs at phillygaylawyer.comDr. Joe Kort is an author, clinical social worker, coach, and sex therapist practicing in Michigan. He specializes in Gay Affirmative Psychotherapy. He wrote an essay for today’s show to shed some light on some of these conversations.
