For decades the LGBTQ community has been a vibrant and prominent part of life in the District. From Frank Kameny’s fight against the lavender scare of the 1950s to marriage equality and the #TransRespect campaign in the new millennium, LGBTQ life in D.C. has changed dramatically. Just how different is LGBTQ D.C. from its historic roots and where is today’s LGBTQ community going?
Join us for a discussion on the past, present, and future of LGBTQ life in the District with moderator Mark Joseph Stern, writer on LGBTQ issues for Slate, in discussion with panelists:
Andrew Sullivan, founder and editor, The Daily Dish.
Philip Pannell, spokesperson and community activist for the gay community, citizens of Ward 8, and civil libertarians across the District.
Loraine Hutchins, bisexual and feminist author, activist, and sex educator.
