Logo (AfterEllen.com’s parent company) has just issued a press release announcing a forum on gay issues, co-presented by the Human Rights Campaign. Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards will participate. The forum will be held August 9 in Los Angeles at 6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on Logo and LOGOonline.com.
“The candidates will appear sequentially and engage in conversation with co-panelists Melissa Etheridge, performer and advocate, and Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. The panelists plan to cover a range of issues including relationship recognition, marriage equality, workplace fairness, the military, hate crimes, HIV/AIDS and other important issues.”
LOGOonline.com and HRC.org will offer the opportunity to submit questions for the candidates. I have a burning question: Hillary, do you know about this video?
I’m also hoping someone will play a saxophone, but I’ll settle for a considered approach to ending the war and a phased plan for workplace protections. I mean, if I have to.
