Look who is a heroine to HRC , upon whom they lavish 370 gushing words, and is a scheduled performer at their upcoming national dinner in Washington: Jennifer Lopez.
Was does HRC have to say about the cuts affecting a lot of low and moderate income queers? Let them eat wedding cakes!
Last I read about Lopez, back in July, she was accused by the Human Rights Foundation of accepting about $10 million in performance fees from various Eastern European and Russian dictators and corrupt businessmen. She is no ally of mine, I don't care how much HRC peddles her as a strident advocate for equality.
The social safety net for millions of our fellow citizens, straight and LGBT and everything else, continues to be contemptuously shredded and HRC is silent. This silence is what an almost $50 million professional LGBT advocacy organization, paying the top executive well over $200,000 and Chad Griffin over $300,000 purchased for queers who don't attend gala dinners.
