    Radio Specials The Commonwealth Club: LGBT Journeys Ambassador James Hormel: From LGBT Ignorance to Acceptance -- James Hormel realized that he was gay at a time when homosexuality was not discussed or accepted. He joins the show to discuss U.S. social history since 1945 to see how LGBTQ Americans have progressed from exclusion to inclusion. Looking toward the future, he'll discuss the key to the advancement of equality. Seldom does social change happen so quickly.
