Longtime Human Rights Campaign board member and community activist Gwen Baba was honored by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, under the leadership of new executive director Jonathan Weedman, at the 6th annual Voice Awards Celebration on May 20 at the J.W. Marriot at L.A. Live.
Some longtime politicos think it’s about damn time.
“Gwen has been a longtime advocate for celebrating women’s contributions and their impact on causes that matter,” says R. Christine Hershey, co-founder of Access Now for Lesbian and Gay Equality (ANGLE) and the Victory Fund, L.A. County Small Business commissioner and of Hershey Cause Communications. “She was a key voice and my partner-in-crime during the ANGLE years during which we saw a huge consolidation of LGBTQ political power. She was one of a very small group of women doing this work.”
