Aisha Moodie-Mills is a trendsetter in many ways. She and her wife, Danielle Moodie-Mills were the first lesbian couple to be featured in Essence magazine in 2010. After working together to bring same-sex marriage to the nation’s capital, they were also the first same-sex couple to receive a marriage license in Washington, D.C.
Earlier this year, she became the first black and first black lesbian to become CEO of the Lesbian and Gay Victor Fund, the nation’s largest resource for lesbian and gay public officials.
Aisha tells Out magazine that she accepted the position because, “I believe that the key to equality is representation. If you are not at the table, then you are on the menu.”
