NY v Uplinger: Gay Rights at the USSC



In 1983, Buffalonian Bobby Uplinger and his lawyer, Bill Gardner, took a Bobby's case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Bobby had been arrested for making a sexual invitation to an undercover cop, and he and Bill were intent on showing that this case--and the many others like it around the U.S.--was a violation of a gay man's constitutional rights. In this episode, Averill and Sarah introduce an oral history the History Buffs collected from Bill Gardner about this case. Tune in to learn how Bill and Bobby's story turned out.
