Three openly-LGBTQ people together will make the first openly-LGBTQ people to speak in the DNC keynote address.
Yesterday, the Democratic Convention announced the Keynote address participants slated to speak Tuesday evening at the 2020 Democratic National Convention including 3 openly-LGBTQ people who together will make the first openly-LGBTQ people to speak in the keynote address. In response, HRC President Alphonso David issued the following statement:
LGBTQ people have made history across the board at this convention. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the history makers:
The 2020 Democratic platform also marks the most pro-equality platform in history. LGBTQ people are integrated into almost every aspect of policy discussed throughout the platform.
There will be more LGBTQ delegates at this convention than any other convention in history, including a historic number of transgender delegates.
