CNN Dialogues explores acceptance within, outside LGBT community


From a national news personality who tried to drink away her same-sex desire to a champion figure skater who was openly flamboyant before he was openly gay, a diverse panel gathered Dec. 14 at Atlanta’s Grady High School to discuss topics ranging from coming out stories to acceptance within and outside the LGBT community.

The panel, part of a series of CNN Dialogues, was titled, “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender: Has More Openness Led to More Acceptance?” Emory University, CNN and the National Center for Civil & Human Rights hosted the forum.
