Panelists this year will be U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston; Rea Carey of the National LGBTQ Task Force; Kevin Cathcart of Lambda Legal; Nadine Smith of Equality Florida; and attorney Paul Smith.
“Based on what has happened this week, it should be an interesting discussion,” said Our Fund CEO/President Anthony Timiraos, referring to Tuesday’s election. Here’s the complete news release, with biographies of the 2014 speakers:
Less than one week after the 2014 mid-term elections, the future of marriage equality and other LGBT issues will be the focus of a panel of nationally-prominent figures from the LGBT and mainstream political realms. Our Fund will bring the elite group together at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale for the 4th Annual National LGBT Leadership Forum, slated for Monday, Nov. 10, from 5 to 7 p.m.
For the first time, the most prominent leaders of national and state LGBT organizations will be joined by a nationally-prominent Member of Congress, when Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, (D-Weston), joins the panel to weigh in with her thoughts on the future of marriage equality and other LGBT issues.
