Our very first LIVE broadcast on QTalk Arizona marks another first. We’re totally thrilled to share the studio with our special guest, Nick Ray, Executive Director of Equality Arizona. Arizona’s LGBT lobbying organization has seen some tough times over the past few years, but Nick believes that brighter days are most certainly ahead.
Nick was the Executive Director of 1n10 for several years in the 2000s and had major accomplishments along with bringing the visibility of the LGBTQ youth organization to a very high level. He has an incredible amount of energy and a “let’s get things done” attitude that should breathe much-needed new life into Equality Arizona.
Nick also talks about his personal journey from ‘across the pond’ to working in New York to eventually landing here in Phoenix. Everywhere he’s been, he’s effected change, and we’re excited to have him at the helm of an organization working for our rights here in Arizona.
There are plenty of ways to get involved, whether it’s financially or just giving your time to volunteer. It’s up to us to join together and make a difference in this State, through Equality Arizona.
We also chat about the Marriage Equality Walkers, who just finished their 99-mile journey through the State spreading their positive message of equality and meeting new people and opening hearts and minds. We bring you two interviews from the walkers themselves. And, Joe gives a shout-out to SWAY Events for putting on a great first-annual SWAY Swagger Awards Our very own Nathan Treanor was nominated for ‘Social Media Celebrity’ !!
