Abstract

Romer v. Evans was a ground-breaking case in terms of the constitutionalization of gay rights. This paper gives a close reading of that case. While not condemning the result, the paper argues that the reasoning of the case is unsatisfactory and fails to provide a satisfactory foundation for the development of gay rights under the United States Constitution.

Keywords: Romer, Evans, Constitutional Law, Gay Rights
