HuffPost Gay Voices, the space at the Huffington Post site dedicated exclusively to LGBT perspectives, is celebrating its first birthday today.

On behalf of Wayne Besen and myself — both proud contributors to HuffPost Gay Voices — I’d like to wish the site a happy first birthday and continued success in the future.

Also, if you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out HuffPost Live, a live, Internet-based web streaming network featuring original programming and live conversations with community members and Huffington Post contributors. I’ve had the privilege of appearing on the network several times to discuss LGBT issues. We’ll be sure to let TWO readers know when Wayne and I make our next HuffPost Live appearances so that you can tune in and be a part of the conversation.
