Former GLAAD Co-Chair On Michelangelo Signorile: The AT&T-T Mobile Merger Support Was All About The Money

Laurie Perpar, former Board Co-Chair of GLAAD appeared on Michelangelo Signorile’s  on SIRUS radio today and  re enforced everything that has been said on this blog and others blogs that indeed GLAAD’s support of the AT&T merger had nothing to do with “Gay social justice” and had everything to do with money. Perpar also told of the massive ineptitude and mishandling of the organization by it’s current President Jarrett Barrios (who makes over 300K a year of your donation $$$’s btw) and just how far GLAAD has fallen and that it is now so far beyond repair that it should simply “disappear”

According to Laurie over 14 Board members have recently resigned over Jarrett Barrios’s misdirection and ineptitude and donations have fallen sharply, the THREE.Media Awards Events lose money, and donors are simply dropping like flies..

On the AT&T/T-Mobile Merger Pepper re-enforces the idea that GLAAD did indeed back the merger because of AT&T’s funding and donations for GLAAD and also as a favor to “former” AT&T employee who sits on the Board.

So there you have it kids. It really doesn’t get more damning than this.

GLAAD is OFFICIALLY worthless. 

It drains gay dollars, its credibility is shot, and the organization is beyond repair  GLAAD is who we should be closing the gAyTM to.
