Sometimes it's really fun to be the Managing Editor over here. As has transformed from my own personal blog into something bigger and better, I've watched contributors come and go as they needed. This kept our content fresh and ever evolving as our new contributors add their voice to the mix.

And today I'm excited to tell you about our newest contributor. Here's a few hints...

  • She was the subject of my first podcast.
  • She is a nationally known gay activist
  • She is the Grand Marshall of Indianapolis Pride 2007!

Candace shot to national fame when she came out in the mid 90s. Her brother, Newt Gingrich, was the Republican Speaker of the House at the time - 3rd in line to the presidency. Candace, however, is her own person and used her sudden celebrity to become a nationally known gay activist. She is the author of Accidental Activist: A Personal and Political Memoir and was named one of Esquire's "Women We Love" and Ms. magazine's "Women of the Year."

Candace will start posting tomorrow. Be sure to welcome her to the family with a big bilerico greeting!
