The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has announced that it’s partnering with CNN to host a 2020 Democratic presidential town hall focused on issues affecting the LGBTQ community, reports HuffPost.

The event, named “Power of Our Pride,” is set to take place at the Novo, a Los Angeles venue, on Oct. 10, the night before the 31st annual National Coming Out Day, the foundation said.

At least six candidates have signed on to join the event, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), as well as South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg ― the first openly gay presidential hopeful from a major party.
