Presidential Debate on LGBT issues

Yes, it's happening.

A fellow blogger informed me of the Variety article below, which says that at least four Democratic presidential candidates - Obama, Hillary, Edwards, and Dodd - will participate in a first-ever live televised debate solely dedicated to LGBT issues. It will air on the cable channel Logo, Viacom's LGBT-themed channel.

Questions will be posed by a number of LGBT activists, including my idol Melissa Etheridge.

There are chances that others, like Kucinich, may jump in as well, as Kucinich has been, at least on paper, the most pro-LGBT of all candidates.

The Republicans have refused to answer, or outright declined, figuring that they would rather win on Christian votes than on gay ones. Good luck.
