Welcome To ThinkProgress LGBT!

Zack Ford and I are extremely excited to welcome you to the new ThinkProgress and ThinkProgress LGBT, a fresh blog focusing on the politics and policy of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.

Like our predecessor, the Wonk Room, ThinkProgress LGBT will continue to unravel the latest conservative attacks against LGBT people, cover the ongoing campaigns for equality on the federal and state levels and provide exclusive on-the-ground coverage of LGBT issues from all of the the 2012 presidential candidates.

But the increased space and central devotion to LGBT topics will also allow us to solicit contributions from our LGBT policy team at the Center for American Progress and experts from around the country to provide more in-depth analysis of LGBT health equality, school safety, and other issues facing the community.

So bookmark us — — add us to your RSS readers –- –- follow us on Twitter –- @TPEquality — and contact me with your ideas and suggestions. We’re very excited about all the LGBT news in the weeks and months ahead and look forward to hearing your feedback and comments!
