LGBT Roundtable
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings

June is a month of celebrations for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities across the country, and San Francisco hosts one of the largest Pride parades in the world. ABC7 is highlighting LGBT Pride month with this special discussion with community leaders from across the Bay Area. We'll discuss what each of them is doing to better serve LGBT and ally communities. They'll share their personal take on local Pride celebrations. And we'll discuss the continuing importance of the fight against HIV and AIDS, as well as the critical fundraising of events like AIDS Walk San Francisco. Join us for this in-depth discussion and celebration.
