Above all, I am a vocal community activist and LGBT rights advocate. I am President and Co-Founder of Fight OUT Loud, a national non-profit organization dedicated to empowering LGBT individuals, and their allies, to fight discrimination and hate. My partner and I were inspired to get involved in activism and create Fight OUT Loud as a result of an eye-opening experience of discrimination. I also work closely with the Trevor Project, the national organization for LGBTQ youth suicide prevention.
I am also contributing editor for The Bilerico Project, the nation’s leading LGBTQ blog forum, and a featured columnist on the Huffington Post. I also am a freelance contributor to the Chicago RedEye, ChicagoPride.com, and OutINChi Magazine. In addition, I contribute to many other online LGBT blogs and news sources. Whether it’s politics, LGBT rights, pop culture, or the radical gay agenda that I call my everyday life, you’ll find I alway have an opinion. I also work as political consultant specializing in web-based action, social networking, and youth outreach.
I have been happily partnered for 10 years with my husband Anthony Niedwiecki, a law professor and administrator at John Marshall Law School (and the former Vice Mayor of Oakland Park, FL). We received our civil union from Vermont and were legally married in California. We currently reside in Chicago where we live with our three wonderful dogs. We are also the proud foster parents of a now college-aged son.
