The MAINstream Coalition and Kansas Equality Coalition are sponsoring a panel discussion Thursday, May 3, to answer the question "So, What's a Domestic Partner Registry, Anyway?"
The topic is timely because the Lawrence City Commission is expected to vote soon on a registry for the city.
Among the questions to be discussed are:
- What is a domestic partner registry?
- How will it impact life in Lawrence?
- Do I have to be pro-gay to be pro-registry?
- Why is this a church-state separation issue?
At the beginning of April Attorney General Paul Morrison issued an opinion saying that a domestic partner registry is constitutional.
