Evelyn Graham Academic Building, G-115
John Corvino, Ph.D.
Philosopher, Moralist, Gay-Rights Advocate
Controversial issues demand civil discussion and reasoned debate. Dr. Corvino will give a presentation that will bring clarity and civility to this otherwise divisive topic. He will address whether same-sex marriage is a civil rights issue, and examine the reasons why workplaces need to pay attention to how they manage GLBT issues.
Dr. John Corvino has been speaking and writing on GLBT issues since the early 1990s. He has educated and entertained professional organizations, government contractors, churches, and hundreds of college and university audiences.
John holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin and is associate professor of philosophy at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. He is the editor of Same Sex: Debating the Ethics, Science and Culture of Homosexuality, and the author of over 100 articles and opinion pieces, which have appeared in regional and national
print media, at the online Independent Gay Forum (www.indegayforum.org), and in numerous academic journals and anthologies.
John’s column “The Gay Moralist” appears every Friday at LOGO Online’s 365gay.com, named by some as “America’s Most Read Gay News Source.” He has also produced a DVD entitled “What’s Morally Wrong With Homosexuality?”
John has been a guest on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country” and numerous radio programs. An award-winning teacher, he is also the recipient of a 2004 Spirit of Detroit Award from the Detroit City Council for his work on behalf of GLBT rights.
