ST. CLOUD - A local activist for same-sex marriage is hosting what he calls a "Marriage Equality Seminar for Conservatives".

Denny Smith of St. Cloud has formed the organization "Winning Marriage Equality".  The seminar is tonight (Wednesday) from 7:00 until 8:30 p.m. at the St. Cloud Pubic Library.

Smith says he wants the seminar to provide a forum for people on both sides of the issue, and teach people how to deal with controversial topics in a calm and logical manner.
