KNOXVILLE—As legislators and voters around the country grapple with whether and how to recognize same-sex relationships, Maggie Gallagher and John Corvino—two of the nation’s leading and opposing voices on this issue—will bring clarity and civility to this otherwise divisive topic during a debate at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

“A Civil Gay Marriage Debate” will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 10, in the University Center Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Gallagher, author and opponent of same-sex marriage, is the president of the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy and former president of the National Organization for Marriage. She’s also a commentator who has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, and dozens of other media outlets.
