Linda Gryczan served as lead plaintiff in a 1993 legal challenge to Montana's deviate sexual conduct statute, which made gay sex between consenting adults a crime. The Montana Supreme Court ruled the law unconstitutional in 1997, yet it remained on the books until 2013. Brian Kahn talks with Gryczan and attorney Holly Franz about the evolution of Montana and U.S.law regarding same-sex couples.
