Former State Senator Jarrett Barrios is resigning form the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation to become president of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Barrios hopes his work at GLAAD will help achieve social equality for gays, lesbians and their families.

"It's because of my love for my kids that I take this challenge on, to make a world a little bit better in future years, a place that's better for them to live and for all of us to live in."

Barrios' resignation is effective in September.
