Lavender Finally Looking for Political Reporter

From an ad on p. 105 of their October 12-25 2007 issue:

Lavender is looking for a politically savvy freelance writer to cover news stories, local and national. We are not seeking a columnist, but someone to observe and report objectively.

Please send resume and published writing samples, preferably on political issues to:

Lavender also has started a podcast: Big Gay News.

The podcast is clearly not getting too many visits yet. A site poll on ENDA shows:

Do you support an Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) that does NOT include gender identity protections?

* Yes. Protecting some is better than protecting no one. (25%, 1 Votes)
* No. It would only serve to divide and weaken the community. (75%, 3 Votes)

Total Voters: 4

It will be interesting to see who Lavender finds for this. Lavender DOES pay their writers. (That's not always true for gay publications). I'd encourage people who are interested in this to apply, and improve the gay political coverage in Lavender. This should be easy to do, since Lavender currently has NO political coverage beyond running wire reports.
