Boucai can discuss laws governing same-sex marriage. He studies how legal, political and other norms regulate sexuality and intimacy in society. He called the Supreme Court's 2015 decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide a victory for the LGBT community, but noted that it set up a clash between the right of same-sex couples to marry and religious freedom.
