FOP stands for From Our Perspective. Kevin Watson and Alfonso Wenker have been friends and colleagues  for several years. We both work for nonprofits, are active in LGBT communities, and believe that our nonprofit work is our calling/vocation. We often spent hours chatting about this, scheming about ways to improve our nonprofits and bouncing ideas off one another.

This blog is the culmination of several months of conversations and planning. We plan to use this blog to get our ideas out there and share them with a broader community. From Our Perspective is a reflection on nonprofits, LGBT movements, and vocation the way we have and continue to experience them. Our posts will directly reflect how we move through our day to day work, how we got into the line of work we are currently in, and how we feel about how things are operating in the field and in the movement.

Now seemed like a good time to begin this public conversation. The plan is for each of us to post once a week on the blog. We are hoping our posts will inspire conversation and offer new or different perspectives on being young nonprofit professionals, being involved in LGBT movements, or considering nonprofit work as a vocation.
