The Washington Blade and Mayor Vince Gray will be discussing the issues most pressing for the DC LGBT community today at 5:30 P.M. and you can be part of the discussion!
All week we’ve been taking your questions for the mayor. Now make sure you log in at 6:30 to watch our LIVE coverage of the conversation at our dedicated page http://washingtonblade.com/beheard.
Get ready to be heard. “A Conversation With The Mayor,” Town Hall Event during DC’s LGBT Pride month with Mayor Vincent Gray, will feature questions submitted through the Blade website, Facebook and Twitter. If you’re watching with us, use the hashtag #DCLGBT.
The Washington Blade invites you to “A Conversation with the Mayor” today, as part of our Pride month celebrations. At the event, Blade editor Kevin Naff will interview Mayor Vincent Gray on LGBT issues. The mayor will also answer questions submitted by the public.
Join us at 5:30 p.m. for a reception and the opening of SMYAL’s youth advocacy project photography exhibit exploring heterosexism. The exhibit will be on display from June 2, 2011 through June 13, 2011.
“We are honored that Mayor Vincent Gray will join us for a candid discussion about the topics that are of greatest concern to the District’s LGBT community,” said Naff. “This will be a wonderful forum for the mayor to interact with a community that has been incredibly supportive of his efforts to push for autonomy from congressional interference in city affairs, including the marriage equality law.”
The event will include a question and answer session following Naff’s interview with Gray. Members of the public will have the opportunity to submit questions for the mayor through the newly re-launched Blade website, Facebook and Twitter.
“A Conversation with the Mayor” will be held at the John A. Wilson Building. The event will be preceded by a reception. Both events are open to the public and all members of the DC metro area community are invited to attend.
