Looming Decisions at the Supreme Court
After oral arguments in 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis in December 2022, many LGBTQ+ advocates began to fear for the worst. The decision, which many expect will be issued this month, is likely to walk back many of the rights and protections that LGBTQ+ advocates have been fighting for, for decades.
We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, June 15. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!

Questions for Discussion:
- What, if anything, do you know about 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis? Did you follow the oral arguments in December 2022? Where can you learn more?
- The survey highlighted in this article notes that almost “every major religious group oppose allowing religiously based service refusals.” Did any of that data surprise you? Why or why not?
- Would you continue to shop at a local business in your community that refused goods or services to people who are LGBTQ+? Why or why not?
