As Creating Change is a conference for many seasoned activists, the folks I met truly showcase the organizations they represent. I asked them the same simple questions that are the foundation of the project, but in their profiles I will also try to feature some of the work that their organizations do. While the National Equality March collection was about capturing a snapshot of the lives of people affected by inequality, these nine profiles offer a sampling of the kind of work being done across the nation to support the queer community.
I will put the profiles up one at a time over the rest of the month of February. I hope the project continues to illuminate the vast diversity within the queer community and the very hard, but important, work ahead of us to achieve full equality in society.
(I also just want to share that NCLR’s Kate Kendall also interviewed a number of folks at the conference. You should check those out here.)
