Washington Blade Expose' Reveals Salaries of LGBT, HIV Leaders of Gay Groups

Joe Solomese, HRC Director, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Joe makes more than Hillary. Reminds me of when Babe Ruth was asked how he felt making more money than President Woodrow Wilson: "Well," Babe commented, "I hit more homers."

Juicy information for great cocktail talk. Confirmation that sometimes you can make more with your shirt and tie on then with your pants off. The Washington Blade has just published a marvelous article about how much money is paid to the leaders of the nation's largest gay organizations:

Craig Shniderman, executive director of Food & Friends, which provides meals and nutritional services for homebound people with HIV/AIDS in the Washington, D.C. area, had the highest salary among the heads of the nation’s most prominent LGBT advocacy groups and groups that provide AIDS-related services in Los Angeles, New York and D.C.

A survey of the compensation paid to heads of 30 LGBT and AIDS organizations, conducted by the Washington Blade, shows that Shniderman had a total salary and benefits package of $382,200 in 2008, the latest period for which the organizations’ salary and annual revenue data could be obtained for a completed fiscal year.

Shniderman’s earnings placed him ahead of Joe Solmonese, executive director of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBT political advocacy group. Solmonese, who ranked second in the salary survey, received a total compensation package of $338,400 in 2008.
