A Little Red Equal Sign and Gay Rights

Like no other community, LGBT communities have found ways to use technology and social media to mobilize for equality. As the supreme court readied to make historic decisions about same-sex marriage, a sea of red equal signs began surfacing on social media outlets. Join social media experts to discuss how social media can bring about greater social change including: Anastasia Khoo - Marketing Director from HRC who engineered the red equal sign for same-sex marriage, Christopher Wood - Executive Director of the LGBT Technology Partnership and formerly social media manager for TLC's runaway hit Honey Boo Boo and Stephanie Rosol - past president of the Las Vegas LGBT Center
