LGBT for Liberty

Webinar Appearance
Friday, July 3, 2020 3:00 PM
Zoom CDT

What does economic liberty have to do with personal freedom, especially for members of the LGBT community? And what does classical liberalism have to do with the protection of LGBT rights?

The short answer is: everything.

The freedom to conduct one’s business and to live one’s life peacefully and non-coercively as that person sees fit is a major principle of both economic liberty and classical liberalism, regardless of any individual’s sexual orientation.

LGBT for Liberty is a unique, half-day online conference bringing together both Spanish- and English-speaking presenters from such esteemed organizations as Students For Liberty, the Foundation for Economic Education, the Atlas Network, and the Cato Institute to discuss the implications of classical liberal values as they apply to the protection and acceptance of LGBT rights and how free markets make free people.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, this bi-lingual event is open to the public and delivered at no cost to you. Attendance will be capped at 500 people, however, so registrants will be admitted to the webinar on a first come first serve basis.

Please note that all times given are in Central Daylight Time.
