Marc Solomon: "Winning Marriage" Equality

Over half the states in the U.S. have legalized same-sex marriage, and the battle rages onward toward across-the-board legalization. Marc Solomon, national campaign director for Freedom to Marry, has been in the trenches throughout this sea change. 

His book, Winning Marriage, chronicles his efforts to protect human rights for same-sex couples. We've clearly come a long way, particularly in the few decades, and Solomon reflects on our progress as a nation, how far we have yet to go,  and why he believes proponents in the marriage equality issue will eventually win.

Marc Solomon: "Winning Marriage" Equality, Mon, Dec 1, 7:30pm, Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave, $5
