Former Advocate Washington correspondent Kerry Eleveld is rejoining the mag as a special correspodent to bolster coverage of the upcoming Supreme Court battles over Prop. 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.
“We’re very excited to have Kerry Eleveld reporting for us during this crucial moment for LGBT rights,” says Advocate EIC Matthew Breen. “The Supreme Court’s decisions on the Prop. 8 and DOMA cases are going to have lasting effect on the lives of millions of Americans, and Eleveld’s insights into LGBT rights and her history as an award-winning reporter for The Advocate made her an ideal special correspondent to have on the case.”
Eleveld will have her hands full, as oral arguments for both cases are set to begin next week.
