Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- The National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce has announced that Atlanta will host the 25th National Conference on LGBT Equality.

More than 3,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights advocates from across the nation are expected to meet at the Hilton in downtown Atlanta Jan. 23 through 27 for a set of over 15 networking sessions, symposiums, interfaith services and more.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist JosΘ Antonio Vargas is slated to headline a session on immigration issues featuring a panel of LGBT DREAM Act organizers, and Frenchie Davis -- a Grammy-nominated singer and former "American Idol" contestant -- is scheduled to perform at the closing session.

Organizers say the conference is focused on gathering LGBT advocates just after the presidential inauguration to discuss strategies to build political power.
