Lighthouse program focuses on struggle for LGBTQ equality

Brian C. Johnson, the CEO of Equality Illinois, will speak at the Sept. 20 meeting of Lighthouse LGBTQ+.
 
The meeting will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Community House, 847 Hutchison Road in Flossmoor. All members and allies of the LGBTQ community are invited to the event, which will include Johnson’s presentation and a discussion.
 
Johnson will discuss the struggle for LGBTQ equality in a historical and modern context. Equality Illinois is a leading civil rights organization that advances equal treatment and social justice through education, advocacy and protection of the rights of the LGBTQ community.
 
Lighthouse is the south suburban area’s first support program for LGBTQ young people and their parents. It was founded in 2016 to provide support for teens and adults who are processing their gender identity and for the parents and guardians who love them.
