Hawaii is seen as one of the next states to consider legalizing same-sex marriage, something the Hawaii Legislature could do through legislation.

The civil rights attorney considered "the architect" of the national marriage equality movement, Evan Wolfson, is in Honolulu this week to talk about recent ballot victories in four states, the status of the movement and the possibilities for Hawaii.

Wolfson is the founder and president of Freedom to Marry, which is working to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act, push gay marriage in more states and to educate the public about why marriage matters to same-sex couples and their families.

He is author of Why Marriage Matters: America, Equality, and Gay People's Right to Marry.

Civil Beat will speak with Wolfson Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. The 30-minute Q&A will be live-streamed from our site, and we'll be taking questions from readers.
