Dnccroad.jpg Towleroad will be at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. If you’re going to be at the convention, or have a story or event you think we should cover, please contact me using our address. I’ll be there with our correspondent Corey Johnson. We hope to keep people as informed of all the goings-on as possible. I know a lot of you Towleroad readers are at LGBT organizations, and in media, and with ties to politics will be in Denver, so please contact me. We’d love to see and meet you. Apologies to those who’ve emailed me I have yet to get back to. I’ll be in touch soon. Thanks.
