“I’ve been an activist and an advocate for various social causes through-out my life. I was involved in the civil rights movement and later redress for Japanese Americans for their internment, and I still am an advocate for equality for the LGBT community.
I’d been making the rounds of universities and corporate engagements speaking on all those subjects, but I thought these speeches are to people who are already either favorably disposed; I need to reach out to wider masses. My philosophy is that the vast majority of people are fair and decent people, but it’s just that they don’t think about the issues and challenges facing LGBT people.
Social networking is an amazing way to reach those who are open-minded but don’t think about the issues — truck drivers, assembly line workers, people who are good people, but busy raising a family and earning a living. These people use the Internet and I thought, why not seize that?”
