In order to achieve full federal equality, we need the best organizations utilizing resources in the most effective way. There are thousands of LGBTQ centered organizations across the country, the most  recognized being the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Founded in 1980 to raise money for candidates for public office who supported equality, HRC became a well known and powerful organization. Their square blue logo with the yellow equal sign would soon adorn LGBTQ owned vehicles in every city in every state in America. It became a calling card of sorts of the LGBTQ community, a statement of belonging, a symbol of equality and unity. HRC not only became a common name in households all over the nation, the organization would also become well known in Washington, DC and well connected in the Obama White House. However, HRC has many critics and skeptics in the LGBTQ community, many who claim HRC is an ineffective and lackluster organization bilking the LGBTQ community and profiting from our inequality. Why is the most powerful and well connected LGBTQ rights organization in the world coming under such intense scrutiny from the people the organization exists to represent?
