GLAAD, What Else Are You Doing Other Than Selling T-Shirts? Same Question For You HRC

    As a member of the HRC, I too have frustrations over the pace of progress with some of the issues you’ve discussed, especially, at times, when the Gala Parties are touted, and then I ask the same questions. But then, I remember, that much of those funds go to support the incredible staff, lobbying legislators, both nationally and statewide, and for the many media campaigns for getting the LBGT message out, to name a few. another item, that I’d like to mention, is there are at least 6 non-caucasion staff personnel at the HRC, many who work tirelessly at reaching out to the non-caucasion and transgender communities, and they would be Shelena Williams, Kisha Webster, Rev. MacArthur Flourney, John Greene, Donna Payne, and Sultan Shakir.
    Finally, I’d like to say that I’ve seen Chad Griffin, Michael Cole-Schwartz,
    and Ty Cobb plenty of times in the last month on news programs discussing the challenges the community has, especially in regard to the upcoming SCOTUS cases.
    Yet the question remains, can more be done? Yes there can, and as individuals, we need to be out there, telling our stories and enlisting support where ever we can find it, whether we wear a t-shirt or not.
