First of all, for those of you who don't know, there once was a national Latino LGBT organization called LLEGO.
Second of all, I was personna non-grata at LLEGO for years due to my criticism of the organization (some ex-staffers will still not talk to me).
Third of all, Gloria Nieto used to be head of the LLEGO Board of Directors so let's just say that I wasn't necessarily one of her favorite persons.
And then LLEGO closed for a plethora of reasons and then a miracle happened: Gloria and I became like friends! Yay!
Fourth of all, Gloria wanted to blog so she reached out and I explained the ins and outs of setting up a blog. She called it Miss Wild Thing. For some reason, I feel the blog was partly my baby.
So now, as we take a look at Latino LGBT leaders involved in politics who have taken a stand in these elections, I might as well point out that today's San Francisco Chronicle quoted Gloria (pictured above with Gloria Steinem) on the election and mentioned her blog - which speaks to her influence as one of the few Latina lesbian women involved in national politics over the last couple of decades.
Hm, I also will not hold it against her that she is pulling for Hillary. Sigh.
