Morning <<First Name>>,

I really hope you'll be in DC this Tuesday to come by Number Nine to hear from me and others about OutRight Action International, the only US-based LGBT organization with status at the United Nations.

Above, a gay couple is winning a contest to be the cover photo for the Ikea catalogue in Russia! Yet the crack-down against the community continues.

UN Appoints first LGBT expert
For the first time ever, the world has a UN-appointed independent expert on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). Last Friday, the UN Human Rights Council announced their pick for the job, Vitit Muntarbhorn - a highly respected international leader on these and other issues.
It's an exciting weekend ahead - I'll be at OutFest in Philly but there's also Orlando (with Pride and the Out & Equal Summit), Montreal's Black & BlueAtlanta Pride - or even ROMBA in Dallas. Where are you spending this Indigenous People's day (or as I like to say, my mom's bday weekend!)?
Come Out with OutRight
After Philly, I'll be in DC for our first OutRight event there, then I'll be in LA for our Hollywood Garden Party. Please join me in either place! After, I'm headed to Paris en route to Cyprus for this year's ILGA Europe conference. Anyone else also doing Puerto Vallarta for New Years? I'm headed there too :)

Keep watch on Hurricane Matthew's projected path as it's expected to head into Florida tonight as a Category 4 storm - it appears it will not head north of the Carolinas. Religious leaders are blaming the storm on Orlando Pride.
