Confirmed participants include Scott Long, Executive Director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights Program at Human Rights Watch and a representative from Amnesty International's OUTfront for this second installment of the "Threat Level: Lavender" series, a collaboration between the James C.
