“I’m excited to partner with Logo to shine a spotlight on the issues that matter most to LGBT people and our loved ones and allies,” said Braun. “There are still so many important issues at stake for the LGBT community. This election is critical for our community to continue moving equality important. I hope to open up the political conversation and make politics more accessible to LGBT people. It’s important to provide a platform for people from all political backgrounds to speak out about LGBT issues and how we can exercise our influence in the political process.”
The introductory video in Logo’s election series can be viewed here. In the premiere video, Braun speaks with representatives of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBT advocacy organizations, about violence facing the LGBT community in the wake of the Orlando attack.
