Ambassador James Hormel featured in "Rainbow Minute"

GayRVA (Richmond, VA)'s Rainbow Minute features FGG Ambassador James Hormel:

Jim Hormel’s philanthropy and activism centers on promoting human rights and equality.

In 1981, he became a founding member of the Human Rights Campaign, a leading group which advocates for GLBT rights.

Hormel’s donation of $500,000 to the San Francisco Public Library led to the 1995 creation of the James C. Hormel Gay and Lesbian Center, which houses the largest collection of GLBT literature in the world.

It is fitting that the Gay Games archives are housed in this library. Jim Hormel was a friend of Gay Games founder Tom Waddell and a supporter of the Gay Games since its inception in 1982. Hormel even competed in men’s doubles tennis at Gay Games IV in New York, and walked away with a bronze medal.
