Charlotte’s On Q Productions will host a special community dialogue with a diverse panel of LGBT community leaders on Friday, Nov. 4, 6 p.m. at Duke Energy Theatre at Spirit Square, 345 N. College St.

Panelists, including qnotes‘ editor, Matt Comer, will chat with audience members in a special conversation before the night’s performance of “For the Love of Harlem,” a musical written by openly gay Charlottean Jermaine Nakia Lee.

The conversation topic will focus on both external and internalized homophobia directed toward the LGBT community.

The dialogue is free and open to the public. Tickets for the post-conversation musical performance can be bought online.
