The rights of Gays has become a provocative but more so a real world socioeconomic conundrum that will be addressed by the law of the land in the United States by the Supreme Court. The rights of Gays, Queer people have provoked many feelings from the full right to left and moderate. Further the religious stand on this issue of rights that have made this politic as big and/or approaching the size of civil rights in the 1950-1960’s.

The right of Gays to have rights to marry to claim economic and health benefits is the underlining impact of this decision besides the rights to equity within their country. This impact and civil right will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

To date, “more than 150 briefs have been filed with the justices, including the ones from the parties to the cases — state officials from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, or Tennessee and people challenging marriage or marriage recognition bans in each of those states.”

“But most of the briefs are amicus curiae, or friend of the court, briefs — arguments made by people and groups not directly involved in the case but have an interest in the outcome and believe they have information of value or a viewpoint of interest to the court on the issues. There were 78 amicus briefs filed in support of the same-sex couples — including one filed by the Obama administration. And 67 amicus briefs were filed in support of the states — including one by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops,” in the article “Supreme Court’s Simple Marriage Case Questions Lead To Complex Arguments.”

As stated earlier this is indeed a socioeconomic issue where economics are inextricably linked to social change and health. The rise of companies supporting gay marriage has softened as for some Blue Chips and Big Techs have endorsed Gay rights by providing insurance coverage for partners.

“On March 6, the day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s deadline for legal briefs backing same-sex marriage, gay rights activists quietly celebrated a victory on Wall Street. Twenty-eight of the country’s biggest financial firms had made an unprecedented show of unity in support of gay marriage by urging the court to strike down state laws banning same-sex unions.

That was double the number that signed on to a similar effort in 2013, signaling how the traditionally conservative financial industry has come to publicly embrace gay rights. Then, the Supreme Court struck down a federal law that denied benefits to same-sex couples,” reports Reuters in “How Wall Street came out on gay marriage.”

The bottom line for companies is knowledge and intelligence solutions which is not inherent to heterosexuals. The deciding vote is stated to come down to Justice Anthony Kennedy a Ronald Reagan appointee may cast the deciding vote on this game changing issue that is a profound milestone for the U.S.
