Gay Pride Month Spotlight: Elliot Tiber

Name and occupation:

Elliot Tiber – gay writer, humorist, anti-hate crimes crusader, mensch.

How do you show gay pride?

I tour both nationally and internationally as a public speaker and humorist. I use these opportunities to explain and promote GLBT pride and equality.

Why do you support LGBTQ issues?

I am a gay man, so those LGBTQ issues affect my everyday life.

What do you think about Obama’s support of gay marriage?

I voted for Obama and while he recently has evolved his opinions of gay marriage into a place of support state-by-state, he will hopefully also evolve things so that gay marriage becomes bound and protected by Federal law.
