GLAAD, the organization formally known as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has announced that actor Omar Sharif Jr. will be joining GLAAD’s staff as National Spokesperson and Strategic Giving Officer.
Complementing the work of National Spokesperson Wilson Cruz, Omar will be an essential part of GLAAD’s Development team, helping to build relationships with donors and raise vital funds to support GLAAD’s work to lead the conversation for LGBT equality.
“I’m thrilled to be joining GLAAD in their culture-changing work” said Omar. “Having lived and worked in over half a dozen countries, I know the influence and impact that American media has globally – particularly in the broader Middle East, where it is widely syndicated and consumed. Working with GLAAD, I know that I’ll be helping to effectuate change back home and around the world.”
“Omar’s story is one of tremendous courage and one that also reflects the journey travelled by countless Americans who’ve come to support equality after a friend, family member or colleague comes out as LGBT,” said GLAAD’s Dave Montez. “As an outspoken advocate for equality, Omar brings not only extraordinary skill and expertise to GLAAD, but also an incredible passion for building a better tomorrow for LGBT people everywhere.”
While I admire Sharif’s passion for LGBTequality in the Middle East is GLAAD, an organization that’s main concern is the use of the word “tranny” or “fag” and on low class sitcom television really a good fit for him helping our brothers and sisters in the Middle East?
And as for GLAAD, there are many other outspoken LGBT advocates that could really use a job and once again this is nothing more than GLAAD being starfuckers and using Sharif for his “name appeal” to help them suck some money out of uberich A-Gays and corporations to keep their march into irrelevancy going for the next few years.
Just another day in Gay Inc kiddies, nothing to see here. Lets move along.
