Untold Stories: Recovering the Histories of LGBT Civil Servants

In this feature by McDermott Will & Emery, MSDC President Charles Francis and Partners Lisa Linsky and Paul Thompson talk about the collaborative effort that has uncovered documents detailing the U.S. government’s historical discrimination against LGBT employees and led to an amicus brief in connection with the same-sex marriage cases now before the U.S. Supreme Court.

“This is a defining issue of our generation—whether all Americans will be treated equally.” says Paul Thompson. “To be a part of this is really a proud moment for me, and I think for this law firm.”
