A new organization dedicated to building a movement to accelerate full equality for LGBT people around the world, was announced today.
The new LGBT organiation named All Out will begin campaigning in early 2011, was founded by Jeremy Heimans, founder and CEO of Purpose and co-founder of Avaaz.org and GetUp.org, and Andre Banks, director of strategy at Purpose and former deputy director of ColorofChange.org. It is supported by an international advisory board of renowned civil rights organizers, online and offline campaigners, issue experts, policy makers and analysts, and human rights activists from around the world.
The group’s website explains that “All Out is bringing together people of every identity — lesbian, gay, straight, transgender and all that’s between and beyond — to build a world in which everyone can live freely and be embraced for who they are.”
The goal, All Out writes, is “to change culture — and policy — so that LGBT people everywhere can lead lives of dignity and share fully in community life.”
What a beautiful dream……
I really hope that this organization is the one that can make that dream come true.
