GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) — A national leadership summit of advocates for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youths is being held this week outside New York City.
The summit runs Thursday through Saturday in Garden City on Long Island. It puts an emphasis on those living in suburban and rural communities.
The CEO of the Long Island GLBT Services Network says people often think of gay organizations forming in urban settings. David Kilmnick says he's pleased this year's summit is being held in the suburbs.
Other topics at the summit will include the renewed increase in HIV cases and how President Barack Obama's health overhaul could affect the GLBT community.
The summit is in its seventh year. It will include representatives from 52 GLBT centers around the country, as well as from Canada and Australia.
