Dr. John Corvino in Chicago (6/22)

Dr. John Corvino, co-author of the recently released book ‘Debating Same-Sex Marriage‘, will be joining for our next Living in the Tension gathering to talk about state of the marriage debate today, why it continues to generate more heat than light, and his thoughts on moving forward in a more productive manner.

Commonly known as ‘The Gay Moralist’, Dr. Corvino is an Associate Professor and Chair of Philosophy at Wayne St. University in Detroit, MI. Along with contributing to dozens of books, Dr. Corvino also submits pieces for pridesource.com, The Independent Gay Forum, and other online venues. More information about Dr. Corvino can be found on his website at www.johncorvino.com.

We will be meeting at 7pm this Friday, June 22nd, in the Fellowship Hall (1st Floor) on 5255 N. Ashland  Avenue.

Much love.
