Tonight's show: Health care impact of domestic partnerships

This summer, the Wisconsin legislature enacted domestic partnership protections for same-sex couples. But opponents have asked the state supreme court to invalidate the new law.

Tonight on Queery, we’re talking with Robin Timm and Jayne Dunnam, a Wisconsin couple that, with the help of the ACLU, is seeking a voice in defending the state’s new domestic partnership law from a legal challenge by the conservative Christian group Wisconsin Family Action. In addition to talking about the suit, they'll tell us about their experiences dealing with health care before and after they registered their partnership. We'll also be talking with Larry DuPuis, legal director of ACLU of Wisconsin.

This broadcast is part of All Together Now, a collaborative journalism endeavor by news media in Madison, Wisconsin, to produce print, broadcast and online reports on a common theme. The theme for October 18-30, 2009, is Madison RX: Our Ailing Health Care System.
