This is a big WOW. Much of the talk about who would succeed Joe Solmonese as head of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has been about whether the organization would select someone who wasn’t the stereotypical representation of “LGBT” in America, i.e, a gay white man. I do think that’s an obvious consideration, but honestly, what HRC needs is a shot of activism in the arm, a pick that would not signal business inside the Beltway as usual, a choice that would reflect the need to be media savvy and deeply connected to politics from the grassroots to the pols on the Hill.
