It's a good thing we always set an extra plate for dinner. In the past week, a masked man made his move, Mercedes sat on the couch and put her feet up, and now we're going to try and squeeze one more person at the table.
Please welcome gay rights activist and American University law professor Nancy D. Polikoff. Nancy is the author of Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage: Valuing All Families Under the Law. Nancy has been working on issues involving lesbian and gay families for more than 30 years and is a member of the National Family Law Advisory Council of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. She was one of the founders of a feminist law collective and she directed family law programs at the Women's Legal Defense Fund. She helped develop the legal theories in support of second-parent adoption and visitation rights for legally unrecognized parents.
Be sure to leave Nancy a warm welcome in the comments section. You know how vain bloggers are - we need to know you love and adore us! *grins* Let's make her feel at home here at the Project.
