(New York, NY) - The Museum of Public Relations in New York City will host its fourth annual event focused on "The LGBTQ Experience in Public Relations" on June 2, 2022, from 6pm to 8pm ET. Every year, this event highlights the role of LGBTQ communicators and journalists in the public relations industry. With attacks on the LGBTQ community increasing from state houses and communities nationwide, the Museum has chosen "LGBTQ Rights on the Line: The Role of Communicators Advocating for Equality" as this year's event theme.
