EQCA Chief Geoff Kors To Step Down After 9 Years

LGBT Domestic Violence Programs Expansion Act!) and some not so wonderful defeats (Prop 8 anyone?). It follows the departure of marriage director Marc Solomon.

    Prop 8’s defeat can’t be blamed solely on him. Did he and his organization underestimate the opposition? Completely. But in all honesty the people who are responsible for Prop 8’s passage are organizations like Protect Marriage and the Mormon Church who outright lied, and the morons who believed them.

    Good. Can they now stop using the obnoxious street peddlers who harass gay residents for donations all day every day in the Castro? I’ve literally seen these people chasing old guys down the street insulting them for ignoring their overtures.

    @Robin: Wow, still bitter? How’s your non-profit doing? Quitting soon?

    Maybe we are beginning to learn to STOP feeding the ineffective LGBT-advocacy industry until they have a strategy to win.
