UCLA Law Gets $1Million to Study Gay Legal Issues

The gift announced last week from John McDonald and Rob Wright will support what is described as the nation’s first endowed academic chair in sexual orientation law at UCLA Law School’s Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy. The think tank already explores such topics as anti-homosexual discrimination, the impact of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policies and the demographics of same-sex couples who have adopted children.

The two say they want to promote objective research, but they also hope to aid the campaign for gay marriage and other gay rights issues.
