Dan manages HRC’s Call It Out campaign, which aims to expose incidents of homophobia and transphobia as they occur across the country. Call It Out has rallied HRC members and supporters to take action on Rick Perry’s exclusive day of prayer held in partnership with anti-gay organizations, Michele Bachmann’s connections to “reparative therapy,” incidents of homophobia in sports and the anti-trans rhetoric associated with Chaz Bono’s run on Dancing with the Stars.
