Economic Downturn Hits Gay Organizations

“Many gay advocacy organizations are scaling back services and cutting staff, as the nation’s recession takes a toll on nonprofits. At Lambda Legal, 10 positions were cut last month. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation laid off several staff members Nov. 21. The National Gay & Lesbian Task Force has left open unfilled positions, and the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association recently reduced its national staff from seven to two.” [Washington Blade]
