NAACP hosted an LGBT town hall meeting at their 2011 NAACP National Convention in Los Angeles. CNN’s Don Lemon moderated the panel discussion that included Wanda Sykes, NAACP CEO Benjamin Jealous, Professor Beverly Guy-Sheftall of Spelman College, Patrick Ian Polk, activist Kenyon Farrow and former NAACP president Julian Bond. The discussion included topics such as LGBT civil rights, “praying the gay away” and homophobia & hypocrisy in the black church.

EXCLUSIVE – NoMoreDownLow.TV was there covering this groundbreaking event.  Watch the debate and tell us if you think the NAACP is doing enough to help same gender loving people.

WATCH NOW:


The debate got heated when the current NAACP CEO Benjamin Jealous is asked by our executive producer Earnest Winborne, “How can the LGBT community take the NAACP seriously, when its current board members are out saying that gay rights are not civil rights” – referring to current NAACP board member Rev. Keith Ratliff recent statement “Gay community stop hijacking the civil rights movement.”

 

Don Lemon at NAACP

Mr. Jealous responded saying the gay community should take the NAACP seriously because the NAACP was there with the Human Rights Campaign helping to pass the Matthew Shepard / James Byrd Hate Crimes Bill. The NAACP were champions of fighting Prop 8 in California as well as fighting alongside the LGBT community in Maine, Massachusetts, in Washington D.C. and in Maryland, and in other places. Jealous also said the LGBT community needed to do more ground work in the black community and not come late in the game with an expectation. He also said the black community needed to be treated with the same respect as the other allies of the LGBT community.

this was an LG discussion…not and LGBT discussion since the Black bi and trans communities weren’t represented on the panel or in this discussion.
