My goodness it's been a busy week here at the Project. Today I get to introduce three new contributors; that brings our total of new contributors for this week up to five! I don't think we've ever added that many new contributors in one week.

If you'd like to apply to be a contributor, please check out our application page. Don't be discouraged if you don't make the cut on this round, we're constantly adding new family members. Apply again or send us an e-mail to ask how your application is progressing.

So who made the cut this week? Who will our gracious readers be leaving welcome comments for? Find out after the jump.

  • First up we have Nan D. Hunter. She is a professor of law at Georgetown University Law Center. Her scholarship focuses on health law and state regulation of gender and sexuality. She's the author of Sexuality, Gender and the Law, and blogs at Hunter of Justice. Nan had a guest post yesterday that was pretty darn popular according to the comments section.
  • Second, I'm proud to announce that long-time Project Dr. Jillian T. Weiss has made the jump from commenter to contributor. I think we can all agree that Dr. Weiss's comments are always thoughtful and genuine; I'm confident her posts will show the same amount of thoughtfullness - only longer now! She is an Associate Professor of Law and Society at Ramapo College and is the author of Transgender Workplace Diversity, a resource for HR professionals on how to support transgender employees.
  • And last but not least, Bobby Parker will also be joining us at the Project. You might remember Bobby from Serena's profile on gay Mormons from late last year. Bobby has been a community organizer and activist for years. He is currently taking on the Mormon Church for its position on homosexuality, and he volunteers with Out the Vote in Phoenix, Arizona. He's a little older than most of our contributors and I think he'll have a unique perspective on some of our issues.

Please make the three of them welcome here on Bilerico Project. I know you'll enjoy their writing as much as I will.

Damn it Bil! How am I ever going to get my own room if you keep bringing new people into the family?

Seriously though welcome y'all!

Nan Hunter is a beautiful writer. I worked with her a thousand years ago at Lambda Legal Defense. It fell to her to write the tribute to our fallen president who died shortly before the big annual dinner. Our friend Margot Karle died from a self-inflicted gunshot, and we were all stunned beyond belief.

Nan had an almost impossible task to break through our grief and disbelief to sum up our love and admiration for Margot, and she did it magnificently. I had always admired Nan, but that had elevated her to a very special place in my heart.

Thank you, Bil, for including her in the Projector family.

Welcome, Nan, Bobby and Dr. Jillian.

She's popped in a few times on TransGriot to drop some insightful commentary on some issues.

Glad that you're officially a part of our rather rambunctious family.
