On Wednesday, January 23, 2008 the Black lesbian, gay, bisexual,
and transgender (LGBT) community will came together from 7 p.m. to 9
p.m. to hold a Presidential Election forum. The two-hour event will be
held in Los Angeles before an audience in the historic African-American
community of Leimert Park at the Lucy Florence Coffee House and
Cultural Center in Los Angeles.

Entitled
"It’s A Black Thang! The Black LGBT Vote ’08," the Forum was the first
of its kind that featured the voices and opinions of African-American
LGBT persons, a community whose voice often goes unheard in both the
mainstream gay community and African-American community. At the
conclusion of the Forum audience members participated in a mock vote to
determine if the primary election were today, which Presidential
candidate would have the Black LGBT vote.
