Another missed opportunity: LGBTQ issues excluded in 2020 Primary debate ahead of upcoming forum on LGBTQ issues

Bloomberg News: Advocates say LGBTQ issues need more time in next Democratic Debate

GLAAD CEO: 'Next week's LGBTQ Forum in Iowa will correct the pattern we have seen in the first round of debates that have left LGBTQ people largely out of the conversation.'

The LGBTQ Forum will be livestreamed on September 20 to a national audience across the country:

NEW YORK - GLAAD, the world's largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, tonight released the following statement at the conclusion of the third presidential primary debate, in which there was no mention of the LGBTQ community or issues important to LGBTQ Americans from the media.

'The Trump Administration has spent the last three years rolling back rights for LGBTQ and other marginalized communities, and it's imperative that LGBTQ people and the issues affecting our lives and our families not be overlooked in this Presidential election,' said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD. 'Next week's LGBTQ Forum in Iowa will correct the pattern we have seen in the first round of debates that have left LGBTQ people largely out of the conversation.'

Next week, GLAAD will partner with One Iowa, The Gazette, and The Advocate for the LGBTQ Candidate Forum at Coe College's Sinclair Auditorium in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The September 20th LGBTQ Forum will be the first event solely focused on LGBTQ issues for the 2020 presidential cycle and will feature the top-tier Democratic presidential candidates, including former Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Joseph Sestak, Elizabeth Warren, and Marianne Williamson. The Forum will be livestreamed to a national audience across the country.
