As activists like Anita Byrant mobilized against gay rights in the ’70s, Newsweek asked, “Is homosexual­ity a freely chosen life-style that can be reversed with therapy or prayer?” In the ’90s, the magazine reported on the possibilit­y of a “gay gene.” In 2003, Newsweek said the Supreme Court’s ruling in Lawrence v. Texas decriminal­izing gay sex “promises to change forever the status of homosexual­s.” In 2015, after the Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges decision struck down bans on same-sex marriage, Newsweek said 379 companies, “including behemoths of retail, finance and sports,” had signed a brief in the case supporting the rights of gays to marry.
