"In the Life" Profiles ACLU Client Martin Gill

Late last month, we celebrated a victory in a case the ACLU brought on behalf of Martin Gill, who challenged the Florida state law that bars gay people from adopting. In that victory, the state's 3rd District Court of Appeals found the adoption law violated the state constitution, upholding a similar decision by a family court in 2008. Gill, with his partner, has fostered two brothers—now ages 6 and 10—for the past 5 years.

The episode, called "Surviving the Past," will air on your local PBS station. Check local listings, or watch the entire episode online.

The state of Florida has until October 22 to appeal the 3rd District Court's decision. Stay tuned!
