Making Change: LGBTQ Impact on San Diego Politics
In conjunction with the exhibition LGBTQ+ San Diego: Stories of Struggles + Triumphs, the San Diego History Center presents a panel discussion regarding the remarkable impact of the LGBTQ+ community on San Diego’s political landscape. From the early beginnings to today’s significant community leadership, the LGBTQ+ community has fought for, and won significant advances, helping pass laws prohibiting discrimination, as well as working toward the passage of legislation that has made San Diego a national leader in the LGBTQ+ civil rights movement.
The discussion features community activists and pioneers Christine Kehoe, Susan Jester, Larry Remer, Georgette Gómez and is moderated by USD Political Science Professor and Political Commentator, Carl Luna.
