The DOMA Project Welcomes Our Summer Intern, Ethan Gil


Stop the Deportations, Separations, and Exile – The DOMA Project is happy to welcome our new summer intern

Ethan Gil is a graduate of Duke University and is currently a rising second-year law student at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law in Los Angeles.  Having immigrated to the United States from South Korea at the age of 6, Ethan draws inspiration from his personal experience, as well as his enduring advocacy for LGBT rights.

An undergraduate education in Political Theory jumpstarted Ethan’s interest in providing legal services to those underrepresented segments of the population who are most in need.  He hopes to direct his passionate idealism while working on The DOMA Project and contributing to the struggle for equality for the LGBT community.

    Wishing you all the best Ethan!

    I’m sure you already know how great the DOMA Project is, and how much you will gain from your time there. I hope I can find somewhere as great to work for myself.

    I’m also sure that your passion for helping others will contribute much to our causes.

    Good luck, and have a great time!

    Thanks for the good wishes Janice!

    This is actually my last week working with the DOMA Project given school starts next week, and I have to be honest, the prospect of leaving is a bit bittersweet. I can’t even begin to describe how meaningful my summer has been, from the personal insights that I’ve gained from working with the DOMA project as well as being able to make a positive, tangible impact on the LGBT community, one whose civil rights have taken a backseat to racial issues in my opinion.

    If you’re interested in helping out the DOMA project, please let us know! This is an all-volunteer run effort, and there are many, many couples who need our help.

    Thanks again for the encouragement and best of luck in everything!
