HRC and CNN team up for town hall on LGBT issues with Democratic presidential candidates

WASHINGTON, DC (September 5, 2019) - Today, the HRC Foundation announced CNN as the exclusive broadcast partner for the organization's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ)-focused town hall for Democratic presidential candidates this fall.

The evening will constitute the largest-ever audience for a Democratic presidential town hall devoted to LGBTQ issues and will mark the first time in history that a major cable news network will air a presidential event devoted to issues of importance to the LGBTQ community.

The Human Rights Campaign is the world's largest LGBTQ civil rights organization, representing more than three million members and supporters.

This historic town hall event, entitled Power of Our Pride, will take place on Thursday, October 10 at the Novo in Los Angeles, California. The event is set to take place on the eve of the 31st annual National Coming Out Day, a celebration of coming out as LGBTQ or as an ally. The first National Coming Out Day was held on October 11, 1988, on the first anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, as a way of celebrating the power of coming out and promoting a safe world for LGBTQ individuals to live truthfully and openly.

CNN will air the event exclusively live during prime time on CNN and CNN en EspaƱol, across mobile devices via CNN's apps for iOS and Android, and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, and Android TV. For reference, CNN's July Democratic presidential debate drew more than 10.7 million viewers.

Six candidates have confirmed their participation in this historic event: former Vice President Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Secretary Julian Castro, Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
