Dave Singleton was the engine and the engineer behind a wonderful multimedia reflection about the impact and legacy of Stonewall for our community. Here's what his boss said:
I am thrilled to report that AARP was recognized at the GLAAD* Awards last night in San Francisco by receiving the top award for Outstanding Multimedia Journalism. The competition was Newsweek and The Advocate. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. This is a very significant award.
Dave Singleton accepted the award for AARP and emphasized the teamwork and full support of AARP it took to make this project happen. GLAAD noted that it was a truly comprehensive multimedia effort that acknowledged the older Stonewall generation while calling forth to action all generations to further LGBT equality in the things we care about most-healthcare, financial security and a life of purpose at 50 plus.
Another GREAT recognition for AARP and the 40th Anniversary of Stonewall package. Congrats to EVERYONE who played a part in making it happen!
*The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) amplifies the voice of the LGBT community by empowering real people to share their stories, holding the media accountable for the words and images they present, and helping grassroots organizations communicate effectively. By ensuring that the stories of LGBT people are heard through the media, GLAAD promotes understanding, increases acceptance, and advances equality.
Go Dave and go AARP!
