We celebrate Pride with a joyous service that includes music from the Community Chorus and invited guests from the LGBT community worldwide. This year, CBST is proud to welcome CBST members Edie Windsor and Robbie Kaplan as guest speakers!
Roberta (Robbie) Kaplan is a partner in the Litigation Department at Paul Weiss and is currently represents Edith (Edie) Windsor, who forced to pay $363.000 in federal estate tax when her wife Thea Spyer died. Edie’s case challenges the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act ("DOMA"), the statute that defines marriage for federal purposes as only between a man and a woman.
The United States Supreme Court granted certiorari, and Robbie argued the case before the United States Supreme Court on March 27, 2013.
This service will be ASL interpreted.
