“I guess this blows EQMD’s ‘we don’t want any out of staters getting involved with our campaigns’ right out of the water.”

The title of this post is the bulk of a comment that Tom Lang made to the following Queer Channel Media item, noting that Lynne Bowman would become ‘Equality’ Maryland’s interim executive director on Monday:

Bowman has served as director of programs and services for the Equality Federation, a national association of state LGBT groups. She is also a founder of Equality Ohio and most recently served as campaign manager for Ohio Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher’s U.S. Senate bid.

“During Lynne’s time with the Equality Federation and as executive director of Equality Ohio, Lynne consistently demonstrated strong, visionary leadership,” said Rebecca Isaacs, executive director of the Equality Federation in a statement.

“Equality Maryland is thrilled to have a nationally known and respected leader at the helm of the organization,” the group said in a joint statement to the Blade from Chuck Butler, board chair of Equality Maryland, and Patrick Wojahn, chair of the Equality Maryland Foundation.

Nationally known?  What exactly is the standard for determining that? ‘Known by a majority of the caviar-snorters on the HRC gala committee’?

Nationally known…

But not from Maryland…

and not a person of color…

and not a trans person…

Three strikes and…………………………………………………………..

  1. those standards shift as much as the birther’s racist requests to President Obama to ‘prove he’s a ‘natural born citizen’.

  2. Polar says:

    That Senate candidate she worked for, lost. What has she ever won?

    • Katrina Rose says:

      “What has she ever won?”

      Well, at the moment, a job that apparently no trans person was considered for.

      Anyone up for sending her a gift certificate to McDonald’s as a ‘welcome to Maryland’ present?

  3. how about some appletini mixers?
