Profile Information

Who are you? (Creative answers encouraged!)
Displaced southern queer medical student from Virginia now living in Boston and working on a public health graduate degree.
Activism & Interests?

This is yet another turn of events that makes me less-than-enthusiastic about the "HOPE" of "CHANGE" for the next three and a half years. Sometimes catchy buzz words really are JUST buzz… Continue

Equality Virginia Hires Straight and Completely Inexperienced Man as New CEO

Posted on January 31, 2009 at 7:43pm 3 Comments

Equality Virginia, Virginia’s largest lGbt organization (big on the G, little on the rest), recently hired Jon Blair, a straight man, as the organization’s new Chief Operating Officer. Now I suppose one could argue effectively that a straight person can adequately fill this role, and I might agree . . . in theory. However, based on emails sent by Equality Virginia to its members and personal correspondence with the chair of the EV Board, Mr. Blair seems to have no prior experience working on… Continue
