Marriage Equality Lessons Panel with Tracy Hollister, David Collins, Mark Phariss, Vic Holmes Quail Ridge Books will be hosting a panel discussion on marriage equality moderated by Tracy Hollister with David Collins, Mark Phariss, and Vic Holmes. What role did volunteers and plaintiffs play in winning the right to marry for same-sex couples years before most thought possible? How can the lessons they learned be applied to other LGBTQ causes? Tracy Hollister (Raleigh), longtime advocate and Marriage Equality USA staffer, will share her own and others’ testimonies from The People’s Victory: Stories from the Front Lines in the Fight for Marriage Equality on how volunteers made a difference. David Collins (Charlotte), author of Accidental Activists: Mark Phariss, Vic Holmes, and Their Fight for Marriage Equality in Texas, will join with the subjects of his book, Mark Phariss and Vic Holmes, to tell of love too long denied recognition and the emotional pain that led them to sue Texas for the right to marry. Co-hosted by RBPN – Raleigh’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce, HRC Triangle, PFLAG Triangle, and the LGBT Center of Raleigh. Event date: Saturday, February 24, 2018 - 2:00pm
