Via press release:
GLAAD today announced that Republican political commentator, author, and TV personality Meghan McCain; Executive Vice President, Commercial Services at Hilton Worldwide Jeff Diskin; Harvard Law School professor and venture capitalist with August Capital, David Hornik; and Managing Director at Opportunities for Women, Linda Riley will join the organization's National Board of Directors. As the daughter of U.S. Senator John McCain, Meghan McCain was propelled into the national spotlight at an early age, involved in everything from community events to national conventions. A powerful role model for young women and Republicans alike, she passionately discusses women’s issues, social issues, and marriage equality, among other LGBT issues. In 2013, McCain launched her genre-busting docu-talk series ‘Raising McCain’ on Pivot, Participant Media’s new television network aimed at the Millennial generation. Most recently, Meghan has signed on to co-host the late night news program 'TakePart Live' on Pivot—a nightly live show that decodes the news stories of the day with irreverence and insight, and points viewers to related actions.

Right Wing Watch reports that HGTV has green-lighted a reality show that will star North Carolina anti-gay activists David and Jason Benham.
David Benham led a prayer rally — Charlotte 7:14 — outside of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2012, which he told conservative radio host Janet Mefferd was needed to stop “homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation” and “demonic ideologies tak[ing] our universities and our public school systems.” He told Mefferd that his brother Jason joined him in organizing the DNC prayer protest. David also leads protests outside of abortion clinics where he praises demonstrators for taking a stand at “the gates of hell” and confronting the “altars of Moloch.” He also protested at a 2009 LGBT event [PDF] in Charlotte. He serves on the board of the Coalition of Conscience [PDF], a group led by far-right anti-gay activist Michael Brown.From HGTV's description of the show, Flip It Forward:
After a decade of flipping houses for profit, brothers David Benham and Jason Benham now help families buy the homes they never thought they could afford. In each episode, the guys help a deserving family find a fixer-upper and transform it into their forever home - with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way.

GayINC the new bullies in town,,,
HGBT is already reacting to the RWW post.
Gayinc will make sure the show doesn’t happen, while keeping media whore dykes like Ellen on the air.. Which in only on air because of the men stripping down.. at least three times a month.. for ratings.
I say the following, if the LGBT community and our Allies are willing to spend millions getting same sex marriage passed, and do nothing about those who really need the help; then they too, are fucking disgraceful.
From Jen Jones of Equality NC,
Does this image piss you off? Does it make you angry to know there are people out there who think NC should *celebrate* the passage of Amendment One? Then, join me for a CookOUT for Marriage Equality, at Motorco, in Durham, on the 2nd anniversary of Amendment One, May 8, from 6-8, as we show the entire Tar Heel state what hundreds of folks fighting for marriage really looks like
There would like for you to join them for their little cookout thingy.. Click here..
Amendment Pass due to the huge failure of NC Equality,, only targeting Cities with Colleges East of 95, completely ignoring Eastern NC, where the NC Family Value target and won each of those counties. Lets not forget the huge post card campaign which was as a failure, they delivered the cards on the day of the Vote. So, the member of the House and Senate never got to see those card before they voted..
Equality NC basically help this amendment to pass, so they could use it for future fund raisers.
