Letter: Play explains how state discriminates 515 ways against same-sex couples
To the Editor:
The Red Wing Human Rights Commission along with Red Wing PFLAG -- Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays -- invites the public to a free performance presented by The Project 515 players.
The performance will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday May 7 at Hobgoblin Stoney End, 920 Highway 19, Red Wing. Based in Minneapolis, "Project 515 - The Tour!" has traveled all around the state, as far north as Bemidji, as far south as Albert Lea and points in between.
Project 515 Education Campaign is a non-profit organization working to teach Minnesotans about the 515 current state laws that provide rights, benefits and responsibilities based on marriage that are unavailable to same-gender couples. The show is presented by a cast of six, each of whom plays several roles in the performance.
Please join us for an evening in the countryside at the Hobgoblin barn. The 45-minute performance will focus on real life challenges faced by same-gender couples and there will be time for questions and answers following the performance.
