I had a chance to talk with Kip Williams, one of the lead organizers of the National Equality March. I have to take back my previous statement about how the march organizers are unwilling to engage in criticism from the community - Kip and I had an interesting discussion and I understand more now about what these folks are trying to accomplish. I especially like the part where he tells me about what it's like to be a young gay man at 27.... Do I really sound like I'm over 27?
Anyway, I still have my reservations about how some of the logistics are going to work out, as well as how much work they're putting into making sure HIV/AIDS issues remain front and center.
It's an action-packed 22 minutes, so click below to listen and feel free to comment. I'm still working on finding a nicer way to post these, but this will have to do for now.
