For decades, LGBTQ people have flocked to the Bay Area to find community and pursue their dreams. But as income inequality continues to deepen, and as the cost of surviving (much less living) skyrockets, the already shaky situation for many is now threatened further by the prospect of massive cuts to the social safety net.

Hear the experts, discuss the issues, and find solutions.
