It would seem that Equality NC is kissing Pam Spaulding ass this week, by making her the Bob Page Equality Champion for the Triangle Region..
from the email,
Pam Spaulding is the editor and publisher of Pam's House Blend at pamshouseblend.firedoglake.com, honored as "Best LGBT Blog" in the 2005 and 2006 Weblog Awards. It was launched in July 2004 as a personal response to the anti-gay state of the political landscape. Her advocacy extends to social media as well with over 11,000 Twitter followers, 6,200 Facebook friends and subscribers, and more than 7,000 on Google Plus+.
Pam has guest posted/contributed to Americablog, Glenn Greenwald's column on Salon, Pandagon, The Bilerico Project, and The Independent Weekly. She also wrote a monthly column for the Raleigh News & Observer's The Durham News, the first out lesbian columnist for this major newspaper.
Pam was featured as one of the OUT 100 in 2009 and named one of Huffington Post's Ultimate Game Changers in Politics, and landed on Politics Daily’s Top 25 Progressive Twitterers list. She received the Women's Media Center Award for Online Journalism and she is nominated for its Social Media Award this year.
With roots in North Carolina and New York City, Pam considers herself to have "dual citizenship" status as a Southerner and a Yankee—and brings this perspective and voice to her blog, which focuses on current political events, LGBT and women's rights, the influence of the far Right, and race relations.
We love Pam for many reasons, not the least for her eloquent and sustained support of our work. During the Amendment One campaign, she kept the spotlight on the shenanigans of the other side, and also worked in concert with other noted LGBT bloggers across the country to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars through a “moneybomb” for our side. In so doing, she not only elevated the conversation, but also helped build our supporter base, not to mention a new and more sophisticated LGBT rights movement in North Carolina.
Pam lives in Durham with her wife Kate—they legally married in Vancouver in 2004—and their two dogs.
Wow like she was the only one keeping an eye of those fundies.. but since she is national known and help to make sure Equality got more funds via a moneybomb blog event-- they have to give it to her..
They forgot to mention that her blog have other writers and she blog about every ache and pain she feels or have, but always able to make to a fucking concert after a spinal injection..
However on a different notes I wonder who’s ideal they are stealing this year for their events..
