Description

James Hormel, former U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg, realized that he was gay at a time when homosexuality was not discussed or accepted. He will review the social history of the United States since 1945 to see how LGBTQ Americans progressed from exclusion to inclusion. Looking toward the future, he will discuss the key to the advancement of equality. Hormel is an author, philanthropist and political activist. He will appear in conversation with Dr. Sandra Hernández, President and CEO, California HealthCare Foundation. Introduction by John Boland, President and CEO, KQED San Francisco. James Hormel was alternate representative of the U.S. delegation to the 51st United Nations General Assembly in 1996. He also was a member of the U.S. delegation to the 51st U.N.
