Viktor Kerney is a Los Anegles-based collegiate student affairs administrator. He is also the blogger and activist behind the Black Weblog Award-nominated Southern4Life. Viktor is known across the Twitterverse as @Wondermann5—and has been critical on the lack of the diversity in LGBT media and organizations.
"I'm hoping Netroots Nation will change that," Kerney tells R20. "[LGBT media] will go to a few voices but there are many others as well. They need to challenge themselves and see what other people are writing,"
"I'm happy [some of us] are here," Kerney tells R20. "But [the relative few] shows that we have to encourage our own to attend these events. I would like to see more Black LGBT leadership on the boards of major organizations. And more outreach towards finding more LGBT leaders of color."
