Malcolm R. Gage Jr. of Irving has been elected to the board of directors of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, a national organization formed to help elect LGBT candidates to public office at all levels of government.
"I’m proud to further my commitment to the Victory Fund’s mission of electing open, honest leaders by serving on its board," Gage said. "This is a unique organization within the LGBT movement and I hope to help grow its already impressive record of accomplishments."
Gage is new car sales manager for Park Place Motorcars, a premier luxury automotive organization. He is also a national ambassador for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, a member of the Human Rights Campaign’s Federal Club and a member of the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce.
Gage previously served on the Victory Fund’s Campaign Board, a national body of community leaders that support Victory’s mission through fundraising and candidate recruitment and endorsement.
Last year, the Victory Fund endorsed 111 openly LGBT political candidates, including Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, Congressman Jared Polis of Colorado and Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown.
