Expect to see Democrats Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Mayor Pete Buttigieg at a presidential forum in Iowa that is focused on LGBTQ issues.
"I'm honored to be a part of this forum and fight for our values," Sen. Warren told The Advocate. "Everyone should be free to be who they are and love who they love without violence or fear for their life."
"Everyone should be able to have health care, to work, get an education, and build a secure future for themselves and their loved ones without discrimination," she continued.
From her first term in the Senate, she earned a 100 score from the Human Rights Campaign in part thanks to strong support for the Equality Act and opposition to Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
The forum, announced in August, takes place September 20. The Advocate, GLAAD, One Iowa, and The Gazette are sponsoring the event. It will be held at Coe College's Sinclair Auditorium and will ensure LGBTQ issues earn due attention in the 2020 presidential primaries.
Zach Stafford, The Advocate's editor in chief, Gazette columnist Lyz Lenz, and One Iowa Policy Director Keenan Crow will moderate.
