Queerty is better as a member
Human Rights Campaign, America’s self-proclaimed largest LGBT non-profit, hasn’t yet replied to Andrew Sullivan’s queries into their queer membership practices, but some of his readers sent him a little HRC-related note:
Anybody watching 24 this season? You know how the Russian guy sold the nukes to the Islamist terrorists so that the Islamic nations and the West would go to war and wipe each other out. I feel like I’m that Russian guy when it comes to a war between the HRC and Sully… two “great powers” who’ve served their purpose and my world would probably be better off without.
That’s it, Sully! No tickets to Cindi Lauper’s “True Colors” concert tour for you!!
Of course they kept your address in their prospect file, maybe even giving you a complementary membership in light of your purchase. There’s nothing improper or shocking here. Sullivan could use a few lessons in cause-related marketing. HRC rose to the size it is today through such standard fundraising techniques… and we’re all better off for it.
