The offices of several LGBT organizations were evacuated today after Los Angeles police recieved a bomb threat targeting a "national gay rights organization." Staffers for the Human Rights Campaign, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, National Center for Transgender Equality, The National Coalition for LGBT Health, Out for Work, National Stonewall Democrats, and others were all evacuated while bomb sniffing dogs were sent through the buildings.

No one was hurt in the scare and no bombs were found.

Since we've moved to DC, this is the second time that LGBT orgs have been evacuated due to a threatened bombing.
