Meet the candidates night

Courting Harrisburg's LGBT vote


Candidates running for Congress, the Pennsylvania state House and Senate, and Lieutenant Governor gathered April 9 in Harrisburg to court the LGBT vote.

"Currently we are living in a political climate which has become more openly hostile toward our communities," said Andrew Guth, chair, Capital Region Stonewall Democrats, organizers of the event. "That's why it is important for our community members to learn where candidates stand on issues impacting us.

"Meet the candidates' night is so important for our members, both LGBT identifying and allies because it highlights which candidates are committed to our continued fight for equality."

In attendance were candidates for Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District including Shavonnia Corbin-Johnson, George Scott, Eric Ding, Alan Howe, and Laura Quick.

Capital Region Stonewall Democrats is a political action committee that includes Harrisburg, Lancaster, York, and nearby communities.
