Since part of the Defense of Marriage Act was struck down by the Supreme Court in June there's been a fair share of confusion over what that means for LGBT couples.

Should you get married if you live in a non-marriage state like Tennessee? What rights are honored, and what rights are not?

Local attorney Susan McKenzie will answer these questions and others from the public about how the striking down of DOMA could affect their lives and marriages in "DOMA is Crumbling, and The World is Changing. What Does It Mean for Me and My Family?" The talk begins at 6 p.m. tonight (November 21st) at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).

McKenzie, a longtime supporter of LGBT equality, has represented clients in legal matters including divorce, breakups, child custody, family protection, misdemeanor criminal defense, and personal injury.
