A L U M N I L I F E Alumni Spotlight Phillip Bailey, 07A A voice for everyone As the debate over same-sex marriage took to the national stage, WFPL's Phillip Bailey, 07A, decided to take a closer look at what issues were the most important inside the LGBT community with the nine-part "Defning Fairness" series. To his surprise, marriage equality was not necessarily on the top of the list. "The LGBT community is very diverse and includes people with various backgrounds, so depending on who you ask you'd get different answers," Bailey said. "One group would focus on homelessness, while another was more concerned with AIDS prevention. Gay marriage, while getting a lot of attention, was not necessarily the most important to everyone." The Radio and Television News Director Association recognized Bailey, along with producer Laura Ellis, with the organization's Unity Award. He accepts the award at the organization's Edward R. Murrow Award Dinner in New York on Oct. 15. FA L L UO F L M A G A Z I N E | 6 5
