Hélène Frohard-Dourlent and I recently co-authored an article in the Canadian Review of Sociology on marriage norms and same-sex couples. This work has been featured in a variety of news outlets including The Vancouver Sun; CBC; 24 Hours Newspaper; The Georgia Straight; VanCity Buzz; and The Washington Blade. We also shared our findings on Our City with Kirk LaPointe (Roundhouse Radio) and Radio Canada (French).
