Broward-based Fight OUT Loud announces new board of advisors

News release:

Message from Fight OUT Loud:

I wanted to send you all a note to update you on the amazing work Fight OUT Loud is doing.  Our organization, which now has over 20,000 members nationwide, is busy fighting discrimination on every level!

New Board of Advisors!

First, I’d like to welcome the first four members of our Board of Advisors!

A heartfelt thank you to Chip Arndt (Activist and winner of The Amazing Race season 4), Matt Foreman (Executive Director of the Nation Gay and Lesbian Task Force), David Mixner (Life-long political strategist, civil rights activist and public affairs advisor), and Pam Spaulding (Editor and publisher of Pam's House Blend, once of the most popular LGBT blogs around) for their support and belief in our mission!  To read more about these amazing activists and leaders for our community, click HERE.

Taking Action!

Fight OUT Loud continues to work around the country to empower people who are faced with discrimination and hate.  We have been working with GLSEN to help establish Gay-Straight Alliances in schools with anti-gay bullying issues, worked with the Gay American Heroes Foundation to get the word out about hate crimes against the LGBT community, and continued to fight bigoted comments from politicians like Mayor Jim Naugle of Fort Lauderdale and Sally Kern of Oklahoma.

We also launched our “1 Every 8 Days” video online and have been spreading the message around the globe that violence against our community will not be accepted.  To see the video, click HERE.

We are empowering the LGBT community and its allies around the country, providing resources and creating new leaders and activists as we go. 

Join the Fight!

As always, we want you to join the fight against discrimination.  You can make your tax-deductible donation by clicking HERE

You can also find us on MySpace, FaceBook, and GLEE.  These social networking sites have been invaluable in reaching LGBT youth and others who need our assistance, so help us spread the word!

Once again, thank you for your help in our mission!  Let’s continue to work together to empower our community to fight discrimination!

Waymon Hudson

President of Fight OUT Loud
