The Nation

October 13, 1987

Organizers predicted that hundreds of gay activists will march to the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington and try to get arrested today to protest that their rights have gone unprotected for too long by the high court. While the justices are scheduled to hear arguments in four cases this morning, the court building will be closed to the public because of the protest, a court official said. Organizers said the protest, to include acts of civil disobedience, is fueled in part by last year's court ruling that said there is no constitutionally protected right to engage in private homosexual conduct.
