“LGBTQ History Month & the Presidential Election”
October 25, 2020 at 5:00pm
Tune in to “Be Bold America!”
October is the 15th Anniversary of LGBT History Month. The LGBT community is the only community worldwide that is not taught its history at home, in public schools or in religious institutions. LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community and makes the civil rights statement about their extraordinary national and international contributions.
Michelangelo is one of those extraordinary contributors to the LGBTQ community and to all of us with his sharp and astute political analysis of our times. He will share with us contributions of LGBTQ community icons in honor of history month and, also, provide some hard-hitting commentary of what may lay ahead for all of us, politically, now that we’re facing a more that contentious presidential election, a nail-biting Senatorial race, and a new out-of-the main stream justice on the Supreme Court.
