BRIC TV, in collaboration with Housing Works, hosted a live televised #BHeard Town Hall on LGBTQ civil rights. In light of the events in Orlando, the goal of the conversation was to craft a collective vision on the issues of discrimination, housing, healthcare and, most importantly, safety within the LGBTQ community.

It’s a movement that found political voice at Stonewall, power during the AIDS epidemic, and a won a key national victory with same-sex marriage. But there’s still work to be done, so where do we go from here?
