by David Badash on April 15, 2011

David Badash is the founder and editor of The New Civil Rights Movement, a journal of news and opinion on gay rights and marriage equality. He is a contributing writer at Change, is syndicated weekly at 365Gay, and his work has also appeared in Bilerico. David is the creator of The Great Nationwide Kiss-In, a fifty-city, international gay rights response to the unlawful harassment, detention, and arrest of same-sex couples for kissing in public. He has been a guest on several radio programs, including The Michelangelo Signorile Show.

On the Internet since blogs were called journals and AOL charged by the hour, Badash writes about politics in general and gay rights in particular. His writings focus on issues that are decisive and challenging to our lives, and to this country. With the heart of a liberal and the mind of an analyst, David pulls seemingly disparate stories together to help people see their world from divergent yet comprehensive points of view.

David graduated in 1985 and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons School of Design. He lives in Hell’s Kitchen in a tiny studio apartment with his partner Caleb, a great view, and a great Black Lab puppy named Text.
