Pride in the City Update: In previous post I reported that this years' Pride activites would be cancelled and such. Also,there had been inquires as to the status of those funds raise prior to that announcement. Board member Joe L set the record straight with a comment( which is posted) asserting that the funds would be divested to the Arkansas AIDS Foundation earmarked for HIV testing. O.K. now that that's cleared up, it seems that there are plans for Pride activites in Fayetteville and the yet as unannounced yearly Conway festival. But, despite an unofficial organizational blow out, I feel confident that area watering holes will set in motion their own brand of celebrations and you never know what CorneliusOnpoint will be up to. Or you can get your pride on in Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Hotlanta, Nashiville, St. Louis, Dallas or make your own pride statement.
In a statement the groups said that the effort will be non-partisan. It is aimed at "growing the pool of openly LGBT professionals who would be qualified and ready to accept politically appointed positions in the next presidential administration."
"Our goal is to make sure all Americans have an equal voice in their government," said Chuck Wolfe, president of GLLI.
The Presidential Appointments Project will identify, recruit and vet openly LGBT applicants for thousands of executive branch positions that will be filled with political appointees after the next president is sworn in the organization said in the statement.
GLLI worked with the second Clinton administration to identify gays and lesbians who were qualified to serve the president.
Potential appointees who are openly LGBT can submit an application through a special Web site created for the project: www.glli.org/presidential
