European Union for LGBT+ Rights

Last night I attended the “European Union for LGBT+ Rights” hosted at the Red Bear Brewing Co. (www.redbear.beer). The event was opened by the EU Ambassador to the US – Stavros Lambrinidis. The event had about 100 attendees.

Drew Keller (my new supervisor – in the middle holding the microphone) spoke on how to tap into the Private Sector to assist in advancing LGBT+ rights. He spoke about concepts from the Open for Business ‘Channels of Influence’ report.

It’s really great to be meeting people who are absolutely committed to advancing human rights, specifically the LGBT+ community. Hopefully I’ll get to attend more events like this.
