For those of you who don't know, Mashable is a British-American news website, technology and social media blog that was founded by Pete Cashmore in 2005. It is a leading source for digital news, information and resources, and has extensively covered countless LGBT-related issues since the start of its production.
Yesterday, the esteemed site released a blog post titled "10 LGBT-Rights Activists to Follow on Twitter," and our very own Ross Murray made the list at #10! Ross is the Director of News at GLAAD and works specifically to highlight the positive relationship between religion and LGBT people. He has written for and appeared on several media outlets, including CNN, the Washington Post, Huffington Post, and Religion News Service. Additionally, he is the founder and director of The Naming Project, a faith-based camp for LGBTQA youth, which was the subject of the award-winning film Camp Out.
Ross's Twitter account, @inlayterms, is followed by many in the LGBTQA community, who rely on his 140-character posts for their useful updates, which are always filled with candor and oftentimes with humor. We are very proud of his leadership and representation of GLAAD!
