Remember when I was wondering aloud on the TransGriot pages if the LGBT forum was happening at the NAACP convention that just started in Houston?
I ran into someone during Netroots Nation 2012 from the Washington NAACP that told me it was being organized, but now I can confirm it is happening.
And yes, there will be a transperson on that panel.
The forum will take place at the George R. Brown Convention center on Wednesday afternoon and be moderated by LGBT task force chairs Alice Huffman and Julian Bond .
It is entitled ‘Civil Rights and Marriage Equality: What’s The 411?’ on Wednesday July 11, 2012 from 2:30-4:30 PM CDT.
The panelists for the forum will be NAACP North Carolina President Rev. William Barber, NAACP San Francisco President Rev. Amos Brown, NBJC Executive Director Sharon J. Lettman-Hicks, TPOCC Executive Director Kylar Broadus, licensed therapist Dr. Douglas Butler PhD, and Equality Florida Executive Director Nadine Smith and other distinguished guests.
Should be an interesting two hours. So will the reception from 5-7 PM CDT at the Hilton Americas Skyline Room after the panel discussion
