LGBT Advance Healthcare Planning

Posted By on Mon, Dec 13, 2010 at 4:03 PM


Without legalized gay marriage, LGBT people face unique legal problems when it comes to making healthcare decisions for their partners. Say for example, a gay man is in an auto accident, would the hospital staff know to contact his life-long partner?

That's one of many healthcare issues likely to be discussed at Tuesday night's "Your Wishes, Your Choices: Advance Healthcare Planning" workshop. The free class begins at 7 p.m. on December 14th at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC). Call 901-326-8861 for more information.
