Advocating for Equality Founded in 1994, the Gill Foundation has been fighting and scrapping and kicking deadbeats in the shins for fifteen years working for LGBT equality. Their just-published annual report, part of a completely new Vermilion-produced website, chronicles the events of the past 15 years in an interactive timeline that puts their efforts in perspective with significant national events of the time. There’s also a short video that shows the start/stop, step-by-step process of change over the past couple years, and popup maps that provide a picture of the changing national legal structure on marriage recognition, nondiscrimination laws, and the like. It’s nice to see someone like Tim Gill, whose foundation at last count has given out close $100 million in grants, stand up for his convictions and make a difference in our society.

Interactive on the south side of the building; designers on the north. We have two hoods: SoPo and NoPo.
