Together, the global community is navigating one of the most uncertain times in our history. In this moment of global disruption, we face the triple threats of a coronavirus pandemic, a struggling international economy, and systemic societal injustice. Much work needs to be done to navigate these challenges, including an active campaign for a more equal and just society. Few leaders have been at the forefront of navigating these global challenges while overcoming the binds of inequality, particularly as part of the LGBTI community. In celebration of Pride Month, this #ACFrontPage features three leaders whose critical contributions to society can serve as a roadmap for the transatlantic community.

Please join us on June 30, 2020, for a special discussion with Prime Minister Xavier Bettel of Luxembourg, Prime Minister Ana Brnabić of Serbia, and Tánaiste Leo Varadkar of Ireland on their response to the COVID-19 crisis, the state of the transatlantic relationship, their outlook on LGBTI equality, and the injustices seen around the world. This event will also highlight these leaders as pioneers for the LGBTI community.
