If you don't know Sue Hyde, you should. Sue is the Director of Creating Change and is responsible for organizing this huge conference of queer activists and academics. Literally, she is the busiest person at Creating Change since everyone needs "just a moment" of her attention. Someone joked the other night that if you need to know anything about the surrounding area, Sue knows since she's been over every square inch. I'd believe it.

Here's my interview with Sue about what's involved in putting together the largest LGBT convention in the United States.

Sue consistently does a great job as has NGLTF over the years advancing the movement forward and training activists. I was first introduced to the NGLTF by the founder of Poz magazine to my first Creating Change conference in Burbank CA. 1991 90? and was very impressed by the well thought out sessions. It is a big task to get the sessions organized in volatile times such as today with the economy crashing and the LGBT community being thrown crumbs politically after so much hard work over the years. Happy to hear there was such a large turnout this year.

It was at a later NGLTF Creating Change conference in Miami that they introduced Sirius Satellite radio a great step in LGBT news and communications and I have listened daily to OutQ and Michaelangelo Signorile who keeps my actvist juices flowing.
