Featured Event

LGBTQ Presidential Forum

Friday, September 20, 7-9 p.m. (Doors at 6:15 p.m.)
Sinclair Auditorium, Coe College
1st Avenue East, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402
Livestream Link

We’ve teamed up with The Gazette and The Advocate to host a presidential forum focused on LGBTQ people living in the heartland and their needs. The overarching narrative that LGBTQ people in the U.S. live in urban coastal areas ignores the millions of LGBTQ individuals living and working in the middle of the country. We look forward to hearing what the presidential candidates have to say to this often overlooked, but politically powerful community.

Candidates who have confirmed their attendance include Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julián Castro, Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Joe Sestak, Elizabeth Warren, and Marianne Williamson. All Democratic presidential candidates actively campaigning in Iowa have been invited to participate, and that invitation is still open.

Registration is closed because the venue is at capacity. To find a watch party in your area, click here.
