It's Friday so you know what that means! Time to introduce our new contributors! Alex and I agreed at the beginning of the re-launch to aim for 50 contributors by the end of the year and putting a cap on it then. It's starting to look like we may get there early. This week we have 5 new contributors to introduce to our readers.
Here's who you have to look forward to (in alphabetical order):
- Brynn Craffey - Brynn is an American transgender male who's been transplanted to Ireland. Political blogging and surfing are his passions.
- Serena Freewomyn - Serena is an anarchist/feminist activist and she ran the G-Spot back when it was a 'zine in 2000 up till it was a blog today. She's also worked with Food not Bombs and worked as the after-school director at the Long Beach, CA, LGBT center till this past year.
- Kate Kendall - Kate leads the National Center for Lesbian Rights, a national legal organization committed to advancing the civil and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education. This will be Kate's personal space and is not reflective of NCLR's work.
- Dustin Kight - Dustin Kight works for the Family Equality Council (formerly Family Pride) as an organizer, trainer and community builder. He will, of course, be representing himself and not the organization.
- Eric Leven - Eric is one of a new generation of gay men using new media to agitate, educate and organize. He is, in the words of Joe Jervis, creator of the massively popular blog Joe. My. God. "one of the brightest stars of young gay activism in NYC."
Please make everyone feel comfortable in the neighborhood with a virtual Welcome Wagon. *grins*
