The American Unity Fund, a conservative nonprofit organization that does advocacy for LGBT Americans, is hosting the brunch on July 20 under the Big Tent at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Talk show host Montel Williams will also attend.
The event, called the “Big Tent Brunch,” will showcase conservative support for LGBT rights and work still needed to bring “full freedom and equality opportunity,” according to a statement by the organization.
Williams, a conservative activist and advocate for the LGBT community, is planning to attend with Jenner, a reality star and activist for transgender causes who identifies as Republican.
“There are a few misguided lawmakers who have lost sight of the fact that anything short of full freedom for our LGBT neighbors, friends, and co-workers is a threat to the freedom of all of us. Like Vice President Dick Cheney stated, ‘Freedom means freedom for everyone,’” Williams said in the statement.
Jenner told The Daily Beast, who first reported the event, that she wants to help advocate for LGBT issues in politics.
