BEYOND THE HEADLINES
June 23, 2013
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings
This week's episode of "Beyond the Headlines" focuses on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, and the different issues they face in day-to-day life. The June 30th San Francisco Pride parade and festival is now in its 43rd year. The annual celebration commemorates the rebellion of LGBT patrons in response to a police raid at the "Stonewall Inn" in New York City on June 27, 1969. Since then, the march has become a celebration of the momentum towards equal rights, bringing families and communitites together. In a discussion led by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings, local LGBT leaders share some of their favorite moments of Pride and shed light on some of the hurdles the LGBT community must still overcome.
