WHUT/Howard University Television presents
Ongoing Stigmas of Homosexuality in Communities of Color
Join us for a live taping in the WHUT studios on Tuesday, June 11 at 7pm
(Doors open at 6:30pm) 2222 4th Street NW, Washington DC 20059
Vocal Point is a new series from WHUT focuses on a wide variety of important issues and concerns relevant to the greater DC metro area. We’re bringing together subject matter experts, advocates, community leaders and personal stories from those directly affected to gain a deeper understanding of the issues as well as identify resources within the immediate community.
In recognition of June as Gay Pride month this program taping will focus on a discussion about the ongoing stigmas faced by the LBGT community which are unique and prevalent to communities of color, particularly within the African-American, Hispanic and Middle Eastern communities. We’ll talk to a Pastor who is working to educate and raise awareness within a faith-based community, and we’ll also begin to address resources available to assist with this ongoing effort. Studio audience members will be able to participate in a Q&A session as part of the program.
Join us as this promises to be an engaging and enlightening conversation.
To RSVP to become an audience member please visit www.whut.org or call (202) 806-3200.
