Since moving to the Twin Cities in 2004, Kevin Watson has served a number of area non-profits. His work has focused around marketing and public relations with an emphasis on online outreach. Kevin has had the opportunity to work with organizations of various sizes and stages, from start ups to large community institutions. One of his primary focuses has been in how community can be facilitated and expanded with technology.

Kevin is gay, white, and male-identified. His is a member of the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis and identifies as a Unitarian-Universalist Humanist theologically. Much of his non-profit work has been in progressive faith communities. A major area of interest is the intersection of LGBT individuals and families and faith communities.

In 2007 Kevin graduated from Hamline University and started Aidan Web Services, a marketing and public relations company working primarily with non-profits. His work with Aidan Web Services includes strategic planning and consulting around marketing, website design and development, brand development, and graphic design. In addition to his freelance work, since 2007 Kevin has employed by First Universalist Church of Minneapolis as Communications Coordinator and currently works with Hillel: the Jewish Student Center at the University of Minnesota as Communications Consultant.

Kevin serves on the board of directors of Rainbow Rumpus: the online magazine for youth with LGBT parents and is a past board member of the Minnesota Campus Alliance.

Kevin enjoys knitting, jogging, and avoiding Minnesota’s weather. He loves forcing his partner to watch movies from the 1980’s, penguins, and reading any book he can find (lately those related to theology or philosophy).

    I appreciated your posted comment on my Bilerico piece, Kevin (The 2010 HIV Cruise Retreat). We have a few overlaps, including non-profit work (my career was devoted to AIDS service agencies) and reconciling GLBTs and communities of faith (okay, only by marriage. My former partner is writer and theologian Rev. Chris Glaser).

    I sometimes wonder if my website/blog (www.MyFabulousDisease.com) might benefit from professional marketing, but I am satisfied (I think?) by its organic growth since I launched it 8 months ago. It continues a steady growth spurt and I have simply been concentrating on having strong content and networking with like-minded sites and organizations. The content is provided solely by myself and I have no advertising (one of those labors of love). I figured I wanted to build my site for a while before commercializing it, and that day may never come, I don’t know. I’m always open to other opinions, however.

    Thanks again for your comment on my posting.
