Paris Hilton may not be down with the struggle, but the homie-loving homos over at Human Rights Campaign certainly are – and they’ve proved it by compiling a list of “diverse group of African American individuals who are leading the charge for [LGBT] Americans”, according to President Joe Solmonese‘s video introduction to their special “Black History” page. The group’s equally special press release elaborates:
The Human Rights Campaign will honor their achievements and excellence in a special section of the HRC website at www.hrc.org/blackhistory. As part of the Human Rights Campaignâ€™s celebration of National Black History Month, throughout the month of February HRC will continuously recognize the sacrifices, contributions and successes made by the African-American community for equality.
Among its first round of melanin-blessed do-gooders, the non-profit’s named UCLA professor Dr. Mignon Moore, black Bishop John Selders Jr. and attorny-cum-producer Nathan Hale Williams, whose forthcoming movie Dirty Laundry explores coming out to a black family.
Sounds fun, no?
