GLAAD released a news release on Friday detailing the resignation of President Herndon Graddick who took over as president just 13 months ago. Herndon’s sudden resignation comes as a surprise to many in the LGBT community.

Under Graddick, GLAAD continued to become a major force as an advocate for LGBT issues both within communities and in the media. Some of those issues are the continual fight against the Boy Scouts of America with a primary focus on ending their ban on gay scouts and scout leaders and their strong, vocal leadership in the push for marriage equality throughout the country.

Without Graddick, GLAAD Board of Directors Chair Thom Reilly promises a continuance of the organization’s commitment in its fight for equality and wishes Herndon great success in his future endeavors.

“GLAAD is very grateful for Herndon’s work championing LGBT rights, especially his work on behalf of the trans community. On behalf of the entire organization, I want to wish him the best.”  READ More at Examiner.com
