Adam Eli Is The LGBTQ+ Activist Changing The Game
Introducing #MilkLoves: the definitive Milk roster of ones to watch in 2018. Follow along as we reveal our top 10 favorites to slay this year in activism, artistry, and more.
Adam Eli is at the forefront of a new age of all-inclusive activism: as the founder of Voices 4, a nonviolent action group fighting for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, the 27-year-old is making waves. Thus, his superlative of “Most Likely to Lead The Resistance” rings true in 2018. And his main weapon of choice? Social media, where he rallies support, spreads the word, and garners attention for the many causes for which he’s an advocate.
To say that Eli has had a triumphant year would be the understatement of the century, but he’s determined to match (and exceed) expectations for 2018. From helping organize buses to the Equality March in Washington, D.C., to organizing the Gays Against Guns Pulse Memorial Rally at Stonewall in West Village, 2017 (and 2018) are perfectly summed up with Eli’s catch phrase: “When you mess with one queer you mess with us all!” Cheers to that.
