Faces of the Forum

2806901_2Barely a day has passed since the YouTube debate, but I have news on another Democratic meetup.

Columnist Margaret Carlson will moderate the Human Rights Campaign and Logo’s debate on gay issues in Los Angeles on Aug. 9. She’ll be joined by a panel that includes Washington Post editorial page writer Jonathan Capeheart, along with HRC president Joe Solmonese and singer Melissa Etheridge. The official name of the event is The Visible Vote ’08: A Presidential Forum.

The debate will be the first such forum shown on live television. Seven of the eight Democratic candidates have confirmed that they will attend (Joe Biden had a prior commitment). And because of the tight fit of a Studio City facility, which held only about 100 people, the debate has been moved to the much larger Production Group studios on Vine Street in Hollywood.

Carlson is one of D.C.’s most respected journalists, and writes a column for Bloomberg News and formerly wrote a column for Time. Capehart won the 1999 Pulizer Prize for Editorial Writing when he was at the New York Daily News for a campaign to save Harlem’s Apollo Theatre.

You may ask why Etheridge is on a panel of journalists and the HRC leader? My friend Karen Ocamb has a blog post that details Etheridge’s political activism.
