Unfinished Business: The Atlantic's LGBTQ Summit

December 6, 2017
Washington, DC

Americans’ views of LGBTQ rights have, by and large, been advancing in favor of acceptance and equality at a pace perhaps more rapid than any other modern social or political issue. We live in a country as divided as it has been in decades. What does this ongoing civil rights struggle say about America today? What are some of the benchmarks by which progress is being measured?

Join us for a series of conversations on where the LGBTQ movement stands, what its aspirations are, and what obstacles lie ahead.

Program Begins: 1:30 pm ET
Program Ends: 5:00 pm ET

Studio Theatre
1501 14th St NW
Washington, DC 20005
