Reliable sources are telling me that New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has accepted HRC's invitation to debate on LGBTQ issues.
I'm also hearing grumbling that some in the community are unhappy about the lack of minorities involved in the planning process for the event. Personally, I'd still like to know why other orgs aren't involved in the event. Surely, Stonewall Democrats, NGLTF, National Black Justice Coalition and others could provide promotion, coordination and logistical support. Were they asked to join? Or did they decide not to participate?
