CNN and the Human Rights campaign announced they would be hosting the first ever LGBT focused democratic debate next month on Oct. 10th called Power of Pride. This event will be held at The Novo un Los Angeles, exactly one day before National Coming out Day.
HRC President Alphonso David said in a statement: “For nearly 40 years, the Human Rights Campaign has fought to realize a world in which LGBTQ people are safe, equal and free in every aspect of our lives. Today, at a time when our most basic civil rights and democratic values are under attack, our work has never been more urgent. We are eager to hear from this field of Democratic presidential candidates about how they plan to win full federal equality, defend the fundamental equality of LGBTQ people, and protect the most vulnerable among us — both here in the United States and around the globe — from stigma, institutional inequality, discrimination, and violence.”
Confirmed presidential hopefuls Vice President Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Secretary Julian Castro, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Amy Klobuchar and Senator Elizabeth Warren will be addressing policies, plans and opinions solely about the LGBTQ community. The event will be shown on all major news channels and streaming live on CNN. Who’s got your back and who are you voting for?
