Last week’s Supreme Court decisions on DOMA and Proposition 8 were big wins for LGBT Americans. But if you don’t have a law background, the court documents might be a little confusing, especially when applied to a state like South Carolina, which has an amendment defining traditional marriage.

Tonight, the Alliance for Full Acceptance (AFFA) will host a “town hall” meeting with the ACLU and attorneys from the Charleston School of Law. They’ll discuss what the rulings mean for South Carolina, and they’re inviting the community to come and ask questions.

The meeting takes place at the Charleston Marriott at 170 Lockwood Drive. There will be a reception with cash bar at 5:45 p.m., followed by a presentation at 6:15 p.m.
