The Family Equality Council will celebrate more than just the 30th anniversary of the organization tonight: Jennifer Chrisler, executive director, will ring the New York Stock Exchange closing bell accompanied by dozens of children and their LGBT parents. Family Equality Council supports, represents, and connects the 1 million moms and dads in America who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender as well as the 2 million children they are raising. This is its first visit to the NYSE. Viewers can watch the historic moment on CNBC, FBN, or Bloomberg TV at 4 p.m. Eastern or tweet in support to #lgbtnyse.
