The Washington Post spotlights the LGBT blogosphere
February 24, 2009
Be sure to check out the must-read "Gay Bloggers' Voices Rise in Chorus of Growing Political Influence" article by Jose Antonio Vargas on the LGBT blogosphere that was featured in today's Washington Post. Pam Spaulding, the "blogmistress" behind the influential Pam's House Blend blog (GO DUKE!), leads off the article and is featured prominently on the front page of the Post's Style section. Other popular blogs including AMERICAblog, Towleroad, and The Bilerico Project and blogger Mike Rogers earn mentions in the article. I read each of these blogs daily - along with many, many more - and I absolutely love seeing a few of my friends in the LGBT blogosphere getting well-deserved press time in a high-profile publication like the Washington Post. Even though it can be, ummmm, unmistakably obvious at times that many voices in the new media do not always agree with HRC, I understand that the organization and the bloggers ultimately share the same goals. I know that the LGBT bloggers essentially want to make sure that we’re all doing our jobs with our members’ resources and that we’re progressing in making equality a reality in local, state, and federal laws; business policies; religious communities and in society as a whole. One thing I particularly love about being a part of this rapidly-growing community is how quickly information moves. If anything, the LGBT blogs are the best at bringing issues to HRC's attention immediately -- and that's made HRC become more adept at responding faster. I really think that's progress that benefits us all.
