Activist and Journalist Jody May-Chang grew up as a secular Jew in southern California. She was born in 1960 and personally experienced anti-Semitism as a child. In college, she had her own radio show called, “Gay and Lesbian Perspectives.” The murder of Harvey Milk became the impetus for becoming an activist for many issues. Her activism has led to a career of journalism and social justice. May-Chang worked on the Idaho Human Rights Act legislation. Outside of the LGBT community, May-Chang is a supporter of the Occupy movement, and the fight for a living wage.
