The Road To LGBT Equality Won't End At The Supreme Court

If the Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality this summer, is there a concern in the LGBT activist community that suddenly, the momentum for full equality might flag? That is just one topic that the most recent "Drinking & Talking" panel took up in earnest.

The Huffington Post's own Jen Bendery joined three members of the gay community -- former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Victory Fund CEO Aisha Moodie-Mills, and Robert Traynham, a former press secretary for likely GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum -- for a wide-ranging discussion on how far the LGBT community has come over the years, hosted by HuffPost's Sam Stein.

As Moodie-Mills noted, it is a grave concern: "We can go and all get married -- and that's all great and fine -- and go to work the next day, put a picture of our spouse on our desk, and be fired, just because we're gay."
