My grandfather was a very important person in my life. As I think back, I probably became interested in human rights from my maternal grandfather. He was a very gentle, learned man, and he was the honorary gabbi at our Orthodox congregation. He was remarkably accepting of differences exemplified by people in the family and by others. He valued people as they were, and I admired that so much.
My role models have been the wonderful people that I've met through my activism, and who have facilitated my activism. That has been members of the Human Rights Campaign, members of P-FLAG, Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, and members of the NO/AIDS Task Force. The gay community has expanded my worldview, and has enriched my life with friendship.
