John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain; Executive Vice President, Commercial Services at Hilton Worldwide Jeff Diskin; Harvard Law School professor and venture capitalist with August Capital, David Hornik; and Managing Director at Opportunities for Women, Linda Riley will join GLAAD’s National Board of Directors. Meghan McCain has been an outspoken advocate for gay rights, ruffling some Republican feathers when she posed for the NoH8 campaign alongside her mother. “Equality is no longer a partisan issue,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “For years, Meghan McCain has lent her voice and platform to spreading messages of acceptance across party lines. Now, as the American South and our heartland move closer to LGBT equality, it’s critical that we continue to build the bridges that unite us in our common ground—whether you’re Republican or Democrat, gay or straight.” Jeff Diskin is executive vice president of commercial services at Hilton Worldwide and oversees the company’s Customer Marketing, Revenue Management, and E-Commerce divisions; including Hilton HHonors, the company’s premier guest loyalty program that links 34 million members to Hilton Worldwide’s global portfolio of ten hotel brands and 3,900 properties in 90+ countries. Diskin has been an active supporter of numerous charitable and community organizations, including AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), Heal the Bay, City of Hope and local chapters of the YMCA Youth Programs, in addition to membership and support of numerous business associations and councils.
