DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gay rights groups are hosting a panel discussion to discuss the future of the LGBT movement in Iowa after they claimed major victories in last week's elections.
One Iowa and Lambda Legal will host the event Thursday at the Pappajohn Education Center in Des Moines.
Speakers will discuss the impact of voters' decisions to retain Justice David Wiggins on the Iowa Supreme Court and keep Democrats in control of the Iowa Senate.
Wiggins participated in the 2009 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in Iowa, and he defeated an attempt by social conservatives to oust him. Renewed Democratic control of the Senate means that attempts to amend the constitution to ban gay marriage will fail.
Panelists include One Iowa executive director Donna Red Wing and Iowa Democratic Party Chair Sue Dvorsky.
