Michael is also the co-founder and chair of a non-profit, volunteer anti-homophobia speakers bureau called GLIDE, Gays and Lesbians Initiating Dialogue for Equality. Over the last 20-plus years, Michael and his fellow speakers have spoken to an audience of well over 150,000 students, teachers, and other various groups and agencies in the LA area about homophobia. GLIDE is the go-to resource for LA Unified Schools as well as for the Simon Wiesenthal Center/Museum of Tolerance. As an integral part of the museum's Tools for Tolerance program, Michael has addressed countless groups of students, educators, administrators, law enforcement agencies, government agencies, and corporate management groups about the impact of homophobia on our culture. He sees both pursuits as closely related in that both fields have to do with creating safe spaces for people to fully tell their truths and be received with respect.
