Turmoil: Leader of Equality CA Leaving After Only a Few Months


The Associated Press:

The leader of California's largest gay rights group is leaving his post after only a few months on the job.

Equality California announced Monday that Executive Director Roland Palencia will step down on Friday.

Palencia's decision comes less than a week after the group said it would not lead a campaign in 2012 to overturn Proposition 8, the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriages.

Equality CA's former executive director resigned in March of this year.
