Atlanta Out Loud

Politics and rantings and just stuff that catches my attention.

Sometimes I've been known to criticize GLB organizations for become distracted by getting involved in issues that have nothing to do with being gay. This may be the most ridiculous example.

From GridSkipper via FlyerTalk: The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce has come out against the Wright Amendment.
NATIONAL GAY & LESBIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE JOINS NORTH TEXAS GLBT CHAMBER TO OPPOSE REPEAL OF WRIGHT AMENDMENT

(Washington, D.C. - October 26, 2005) - Today the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) endorsed the resolution recently made by the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce to oppose repeal of the Wright Amendment.

Justin Nelson, Executive Director of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber, applauded Texas’ gay business leaders for urging the entire community to unite on this divisive issue and for effectively communicating the concerns of gay-owned businesses and residents in North Texas who felt the direct impact of this debate. “We are pleased to stand by our Dallas business leaders as an influential, respected voice among all minority business leaders in the region.”

Nelson added, “We see our mission two-fold. By promoting economic growth and prosperity, we are fully committed to ensuring a seat at the table for many economic policy debates - and whenever possible, to partner with our local chambers to amplify their efforts. We also applaud American Airlines for more than a decade’s leadership to fair-minded principles that serve the community equally and respectfully.”
Now, the Wright Amendment is a horrible piece of trash that was put in place to put Southwest Airlines at a disadvantage to other airlines in Texas. If you don't know much about it, go read about it: SetLoveFree.org

But how the hell is this a Gay issue? General consensus is that it is a favor to American Airlines for their support of Gay folk over the years. But, geez.... FOCUS PEOPLE!

What the NGLCC did was absolutely terrible.

It sends the message that large corporations can "purchase" the gay community endorsement for just about anything.

It also undermines our credibility. The next time the NGLCC makes a statement, people will be right to ask, is this a legitimate gay community issue or did these guys just get paid?
