Longtime D.C. gay activist Rick Rosendall won election on Dec. 11 as president of the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance, a group with which he’s been active for more than 20 years.

Rosendall, who had been serving as the group’s vice president for political affairs, succeeds current GLAA President Miguel Tuason, who chose not to run for another term.

GLAA member Charles Butler won election to the vice president for political affairs position.

Kevin Davis, the GLAA vice president for administration; Alison Gardner, the group’s secretary; and Gary Collins, treasurer, were re-elected to those posts.

Each of the officer candidates ran unopposed and was elected by acclamation.
