The Los Angeles LGBT Center will host a post-election virtual community conversation via Facebook Live on Wednesday, November 4, at 6 p.m PT that will include an update on the election results and their impact on the LGBT community. Center CEO Lorri L. Jean will be joined by guests U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (CA–28th District); Phill Wilson, Founder of the Black AIDS Institute; and Dan Maldonado and Eve O’Toole, the Center’s Federal Advocates.

“Four years ago, on the evening immediately following the stunning U.S. presidential election, we held a community gathering at our Village at Ed Gould Plaza because, in times of crisis and turmoil, we find comfort and strength when we unite,” said Los Angeles LGBT Center CEO Lorri L. Jean. “This year’s community conversation, while virtual, is no different because so much is still at stake for the LGBT community. We must continue the fight to build a better world in which LGBT people thrive as healthy, equal, and complete members of society—no matter who becomes our next President.”
