FARMINGTON HILLS – On March 5 at 7 p.m., the Holocaust Memorial Center will present Be in the Know: A Briefing on the Rights of the Worldwide LGBT Community in conjunction with a current special exhibit Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals, 1933-1945. Jay Kaplan, LGBT Project Staff Attorney of the ACLU of Michigan and David C. Koelsch, Director of the Immigration Law Clinic at University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, will address the most current, key issues facing LGBT communities both at home and abroad. Admission is free and light refreshments will be provided.
“With the conclusion of the Olympics, Russia will presumably go back to its anti-homosexual agenda. Nigeria and Uganda recently sparked the outcry from human rights groups due to their extreme anti-homosexuality laws. In the U.S., the legislatures of Kansas and Arizona (vetoed Feb. 26 by the Governor) are considering laws that could give service providers the right to deny basic governmental, health, and human services to people who are perceived to be homosexual. And, in a downtown Detroit courtroom, Judge Bernard Friedman is hearing a case that could deem Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional,” the Center said in a press release.
The Holocaust Memorial Center is located at 28123 Orchard Lake Rd., Farmington Hills. Phone 248-553-2400 x. 124 or visit the website
