Former Vice President Dick Cheney and former NAACP Chairman Julian Bond don't end up in the same category of leaders every day, but according to the most recent panel for "Drinking & Talking," one thing the two man have in common is that they're both under-appreciated advocates of LGBT rights.

The Huffington Post's own Jen Bendery joined three members of the gay community -- former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Victory Fund CEO Aisha Moodie-Mills, and Robert Traynham, a former press secretary for likely GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum -- for a wide-ranging discussion on how far the LGBT community has come over the years, hosted by HuffPost's Sam Stein.
