The battle over gay marriage in Washington State

April 2, 2012


In this edition of Northwest Now, producer/host Tom Layson takes on the gay marriage debate speaking with stakeholders on both sides in advance of the two ballot issues likely to dominate the November 2012 election cycle. Northwest Now also takes a look at the controversial Hide/Seek portrait exhibition at the Tacoma Art Museum where curators and museum officials know full well that they will find themselves in the middle of the discussion about gay marriage.
