Anti-Gay Troup Coronado Quits GLAAD, Now He Should Quit His Other Gay Orgs

Yesterday we said that GLAAD should dump Troup Coronado from their Board of Directors. Not because GLAAD apparently fobbed off some pre-written letter from AT&T against Net Neutrality during his tenure, but rather because he has helped get anti-gay judicial apointees onto the bench and has worked for the “virulently anti-gay” Heritage Foundation which has fought queer equality for about two decades now.

Well Coronado just quit GLAAD and good riddance. But what about the other queer boards he’s on?

Cornado still sits on the board of Equality California, AIDS Project Los Angeles, and the Richmond Ermet AIDS Foundation, just to name a few. He should resign from those boards instead of continuing to tarnish their good names with his odious presence.

That being said, while we abhor AT&T anti-New Neutrality stance and their deliberate PR push to use liberal and queer groups to support for their T-Mobile merger, we recognize that AT&T has done good work with the LGBT community in the past. Our focus now is on Coronado’s anti-gay work, not his association with AT&T.
