Rea Carey is one of my favorite people, so I should warn you that in this interview I'm pretty casual as versus some of the other interviews I did that were more formal. Rea "gets it" and unlike a few other organizational bigwigs, she doesn't have an ego issue. She also understands that marriage is not the only issue facing the LGBT community.

Like the interview with NGLTF's Deputy Executive Director Darlene Nipper, this video was recorded during the Creating Change conference.

Other half of the interview after the jump.

So If the NGLTF is actually interested in representing our whole community the way that they like to claim they are and pat themselves on the back for, when are they going to actually start to only use a non exclusive or inclusive name?
Just the same question that I have been asking all along.
I find it interesting that they are really blowing their whistles so much about inclusion and the whole community and they still use an exclusive name which leaves so many members of the LGBTQA community our of the visual spectrum.
I just continue to find the whole thing to be hypocritical. The NGLTF should either be what they claim to be in all ways or they should stop claiming to be something that they are not actually prepared to realistically embrace.
