A “Global LGBT Event,” Equality Forum is scheduled for April 26 to May 2, 2010 in the incredibly gay- and lesbian-friendly city of Philadelphia, Penn. Each year it seems that the Equality Forum gets better and better. With everything from black-tie dinners to raucous street parties to solemn vigils and much more, for a week, gays and lesbians from the world over celebrate queer culture in all its complex, rich diversity.
Each year a different country or region is highlighted and becomes the focus of additional discussion and celebration. This year Equality Forum showcases the struggle for LGBT rights in Africa.
