Giuliani to Headline "Liberty for All!" Conference
NY Senate Hopeful Joining Top Gay Leaders Appearing at Annual Log Cabin National Leadership Conference
(NEW YORK, NY) – Two-term New York City Mayor and likely GOP Senate candidate Rudolph Giuliani (R) will headline LIBERTY FOR ALL! – the 1999 Log Cabin National Leadership Conference, in New York City in August.
Giuliani will deliver the keynote address at the conference banquet at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, also the headquarters of the New York State Republican Party. The Mayor will join top gay and lesbian leaders, writers, elected officials and activists from across the political spectrum in appearing before the largest annual gathering of gay and lesbian conservatives in the nation, which has been broadcast nationwide by C-SPAN each year since 1995.
Participants in a wide-ranging plenary debate on the state of the gay movement will include Andrew Sullivan, celebrated author of such books as "Virtually Normal" and "Love Undetectable"; Brian Bond, executive director of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund; Jonathan Rauch, national correspondent for the National Journal; Urvashi Vaid, director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute; and Rich Tafel, executive director of Log Cabin Republicans.
As part of a nationwide effort announced in January entitled "Strategy 2000," the conference will also focus heavily on increasing civic activism by gay Americans at the local, state and national level. A range of openly-gay elected officials will appear to discuss their experiences and lessons on the campaign trail, and attendees will participate in intensive professional workshop trainings on fundraising, running for office and grass-roots organizing.
LIBERTY FOR ALL! will be held August 27 through 29, 1999 at the Roosevelt Hotel.
