Conservative talk station seeking LGBT people for panel discussion

Or brown.Or yellow.Or red.Or female.Or gay/lesbian,” is looking for LGBT people in the DFW area to participate in an on-air panel discussion about their sexual orientation and what it’s like to be a member of the LGBT community in Dallas.

He has already done two similar programs, one about being black, one about being Hispanic.
