Jan Adams contributes a monthly column, Gay and Gray, to Time Goes By about aging in the LGBT community. It appears on or about the 26th of each month.
I'm a progressive political activist
who runs trails and climbs mountains whenever any are available. I've had the privilege to work for justice in Central America (Nicaragua and El Salvador), in South Africa, in the fields of California with the United Farmworkers Union, and in the cities and schools of my own country.
I'm a Christian of the Episcopalian flavor; we think and argue a lot. For work, I've done a bit of it all: run an old fashioned switchboard; remodeled buildings and poured concrete; edited and published periodicals, reports and books; and organized for electoral campaigns. I am an independent consultant to organizations seeking "help when you have to make a fight."
My current main projects are political consulting with grassroots community groups learning how to influence elections and serving as the national field organizer for Claiming the Blessing, a consortium working for full inclusion of LGBT people in the life of the Episcopal Church.
In addition to writing the Gay and Gray column for Time Goes By, Jan blogs at Happening-Here.
