We have lost a great friend, advocate, and strong coalition builder for LGBT health and rights. This loss to our communities and his family is immeasurable. Hutson served in many key capacities with the Coalition over the past eight years, including as Executive Director and Board Co-chair. Under his tenure as Executive Director, the Coalition and our partners helped ensure that health reform efforts were inclusive and accountable to LGBT individuals. This accomplishment is just one of many. Most importantly, Hutson always made a space at the table for all and brought together many different communities and organizations that may not have otherwise come together through his warmth, intelligence, intentionality, and humor. The Coalition Board of Directors is working with other organizations and community members to formally pay tribute to Hutson and will communicate plans as soon as we are able. Until then, lets honor Hutson each day by living a life rooted in community, justice and lovingness.
