Equal marriage and equality for the LGBT community has long been a hot topic across the country and secular humanists should be educated and responsive to these issues.
Mary Griggs, chair of the Forum for Equality executive board, will address NOSHA to discuss the history of the equal marriage movement, highlight the political activism in Louisiana on behalf of LGBT issues and take questions on the recent lawsuit filed to allow recognition of same-sex marriages that have occurred outside of our state.
Forum for Equality (http://forumforequality.org/wp/) is Louisiana’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) human rights organization dedicated to the establishment of a society free from discrimination and to the support of good government. They advocate for policy change at the local, state and federal levels, organize grassroots equality advocates to engage in the political process, educate the public about the experiences, values and needs of the LGBT community and work to elect candidates committed to being champions for equality
To get to the meeting place at the zoo: Enter from Magazine Street at Zoo Avenue (between the two stone lions) and continue to the statue of Audubon. The entry way to our area (the Dominion Learning Center) is to the right of the main entrance through the metal gates.
NEW: The gate will be locked, so you will need to look for a button on the left side that will alert zoo security that you are attending the NOSHA meeting.
If it's a pretty day or there is a festival, parking will be at a premium so give yourself plenty of time to find a spot.

All NOSHA meetings are free and open to the general public.
