  •  I was already an adult, living in DC (4+ / 0-)

    At the time, DC's local government kept repealing its sodomy law and Congress kept reinstating it. The only opening left to local authorities was to absolutely refuse to prosecute anyone for sodomy.

    I moved to California shortly after Bowers was handed down. Not because of the decision or because CA had already gotten rid of its sodomy laws, but it certainly helped.
