Mary Bonauto, the lawyer who brought same-sex marriage to Massachusetts–and has been the legal strategist who laid the groundwork for victories at the state and federal level–was among those who won this year’s MacArthur genius awards. This is a well-deserved triumph for the greatest civil rights leader of the LGBT movement. Congratulations, Mary Bonauto, and GLAD!
