Hoping to Create Change, LGBT Conference Set to Take Over Downtown Next Weekend
And now, Dallas's next big convention: the 22nd National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change, which is expected to bring "more than 2,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights supporters" to the downtown Sheraton February 3 though 7. Gay rights, of course, are on the agenda -- so too immigration reform, as Thomas Saenz, president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, is on the speakers' list. Alas, where's Megan Feldman when we need her? Colorado? You don't say.
Seems Queer LiberAction would have scheduled its Freedom to Marry Day around the convention. But, no, the group has decided to hold its same-sex-marriage-in at noon on February 12 in front of the Records Building on Main Street downtown. (Just in time for NBA All-Star Game weekend!) Should have held it at Fair Park, or have I mixed up my conventions again?
