Bloomberg Member Spotlight: Racism within the LGBTQ+ Community

June 29, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

In partnership with Out Leadership’s Proudly Resilient programming, Bloomberg LP is excited to host a conversation with leaders and activists around advocacy and the intersection of LGBTQ+ identity and race moderated by Jim Ellis, Assistant Managing Editor for BusinessWeek.

Event Panel:
Gonzalo Casals, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs
Frederick A. Davie, Executive Vice President & Secretary of the Board of Trustees, Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York
Victoria Rodriguez-Roldan, Trans/Gender Non-Conforming Justice Project Director, National LGBTQ Task Force
Nicole Cozier, Senior Vice President, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Human Rights Campaign (HRC)

While the LGBTQ+ movement looks forward to a world without homophobia and transphobia, it too often fails to look inside itself at the racial biases that people of color face in the cis-straight world. Racism is rampant in the LGBTQ community and when we fail to address and confront that racism, we fail the most vulnerable among us. This conversation will explore the intersection of race and the queer identity; confront the racism in the LGBTQ+ community; and encourage us to identify the roles we all play to support LGBTQ+ inclusion.
