Make Your Voice Heard

On November 8, 2008, the Museum of Broadcast Communications plans to induct James Dobson’s anti-gay Focus on the Family radio program into its Radio Hall of Fame.

Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and Truth Wins Out are getting the word out about the Radio Halls of Fame's intent to honor and induct a man who has a long track record of defaming LGBT people on topics ranging from gay parenting, marriage equality and so-called "repairtive therapy."

Dobson runs Colorado Springs-based "Focus on the Family," and GLAADBlog reports that:

Dobson has said being gay “has to do with an identity crisis that occurs too early to remember it” and that gay people “have as many as 300 to 1,000 partners in a lifetime.” He has also falsely claimed that committed gay couples “cannot be a family” and that allowing them to get married would “destroy the family.”

Be sure to check out this video, and read more on the GLAADBlog about how to speak up for our LGBT loved ones. A first step you can take is to contact the Museum of Broadcast Communications and tell them that a man who has spent his career demonizing LGBT people does not deserve to be the the Radio Hall of Fame.
